This Week @ The Homeless Coalition

Tell Council: Put Affordable Housing Trust Fund 💲on the November 2022 Ballot!
The quality of every aspect, of all of our lives, depends on having an affordable home. Tens of thousands of us in Cincinnati households are living in housing we cannot afford, or are experiencing homelessness; whether it be in a shelter, outdoors, or bouncing from a car to unfamiliar couch to under a bridge. Most families with children who call seeking shelter, are turned away because there is not room for the many families loosing their homes. This is because, as a city, we have invested many resources in the development of luxury homes, but we have invested very little city funds into low-income affordable housing. Within the city of Cincinnati, we are short 28,000 homes affordable to households with approximately a minimum wage income.
The only way we can start to get ourselves out of this hole, is by boldly investing in affordable housing. Last year, we put Issue 3 on the ballot to put $50 million into the City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund every year. It didn’t pass because of controversy over the funding mechanisms. However, through lots of conversation with service providers, labor unions, people experiencing the problem and many more, we have written an improved charter amendment that would fund the Trust Fund by using a 0.3% earnings tax. Until 2020, our earnings tax was 2.1%. 0.3% went to the bus system. In 2020 we collectively voted to move bus funding to the county. This ended that 0.3% and reduced our earnings tax to 1.8%. Our charter amendment would simply restore the earnings tax to what it was in 2020 and the many years before, but this time, the 0.3% would be devoted to affordable housing. Every other major city in Ohio has an earnings tax of 2.5%, while we sit at 1.8%. The earnings tax restoration would generate about $50 million every year.
This change can only happen at the ballot box. There are 2 ways to put it on the ballot: doing what we did last time; collect nearly 10,000 signatures, or have 6 of 9 City Council People vote to do so. We have been calling for them to put it on this November 2022 ballot. Time is running very short, to meet all the state timing rules, but it is still possible if they do it before the end of August. During last year’s council campaigns, all of them said affordable housing was a top priority. This is how they can show they meant what they said.
Please send members of Council an email imploring them to make history by putting affordable housing back on the ballot. We cannot be the city we need to be without restoring our earnings tax for affordable housing. You can find their contact info here:

"What the residents have found, they [rental investment companies] often come with a lot of fines and fees... there is an ability for them to control the market, and raise rents drastically... higher than the national rate. There have been a lot of complaints against these organizations..."

There is a question whether magistrates will follow this.

"A Hamilton County judge says Cincinnati’s pay-to-stay ordinance should be enforced, but that doesn’t necessarily mean magistrates will start enforcing it after refusing for seven months.

Cincinnati Council passed pay-to-stay last year. It’s supposed to force a landlord to stop a nonpayment eviction if the tenant can pay all past due rent and fees. Hamilton County magistrates announced their decision not to enforce it on the day it went into effect in December, saying they think the local ordinance conflicts with state law.

It was an unusual move, considering there was no legal challenge to the law; nor is there one now.

Legal Aid challenged that decision in one particular eviction case, where the tenant has a voucher from the Community Action Agency for rent assistance from federal stimulus funds.

Municipal Judge Dwane Mallory dismissed the eviction this week, saying the magistrates are wrong about the ordinance.

“[T]his court finds the city of Cincinnati’s ‘Pay to Stay’ ordinance does not conflict with state laws and is a constitutionally valid exercise of its home-rule authority,” Mallory wrote. “As such, the ordinance provides an affirmative defense and should have been applied in this case.”

But that’s not the reason Mallory dismissed the eviction. He says the notice to vacate was filed too early and therefore the court doesn’t have jurisdiction: “This court’s aforementioned findings [regarding pay-to-stay] are rendered moot.”


The Enquirer recently released an article calling for City Council to address the issues of Affordable Housing in Cincinnati. A great read on how exclusionary housing practices have created a housing crisis for those at the bottom of our cities economic ladder.

Jennifer Arens is the community education coordinator at Peaslee Neighborhood Center and a Cincinnati resident of eight years.

"This is a decisive moment for housing policy in Cincinnati. Residents have advocated, organized and voted to push our city government to address our dire need for affordable housing. However, it’s clear that our work is far from over.

We’re repeatedly hearing a troubling message from our city officials on this topic – that what Cincinnati needs is "housing at all price points." This bears a striking resemblance to the "all lives matter" counter to the Black Lives Matter movement. Both statements are essentially meaningless on their own; they are offered only in reaction to the naming of a pointed and urgent injustice. Both are woefully out of touch with reality and used to undermine righteous demands for action. 

Let’s be clear. In Cincinnati, housing is a crisis for people at the bottom of the economic ladder. We cannot honestly read our data any other way, and it’s not confusing to anyone paying sincere attention. Lives are at stake for those of us filling our shelters, sleeping in cars with children and threatened by ever-looming eviction. 

There are two pathways to the units we need: extensively funding and managing our affordable housing trust fund, and implementing a smart, inclusionary housing policy, which would require a percentage of affordable units within some market-rate housing projects. Local advocates have researched, consulted with experts and proposed actionable plans for both.

The call for $50 million into our Affordable Housing Trust Fund is backed by thousands of petition signatures, multiple studies and persistent public testimony. Demands for inclusionary housing ring out from hundreds of residents pressing developers to include affordable housing in exchange for tax abatements and bonus density, and from public pushback on an upzoning proposal that glaringly omitted affordability requirements.

Why won’t City Council members put real funding for our trust fund on the ballot again? A similar move in Philadelphia last year won overwhelming support, and a small bump in our earnings tax – back to what we were paying two years ago – would do the trick. Our mayor’s new commitment of some budget surplus to the trust fund is good, but surplus funds are not guaranteed, and at best it will generate no more than $5 million – maybe 50 homes – annually. Most of the other committed funds are loans, not grants; repayment isn’t possible for affordable projects that keep rents as low as we need.

Why, during this once-in-a-lifetime federal funding opportunity, has Cincinnati thrown a mere $5 million of American Rescue Plan money into our trust fund? St. Paul has committed $35 million; Nashville, $40 million; Denver, $28 million; and Minneapolis, about $30 million. Each received less ARP funding than Cincinnati.

Why won’t City Council members commission national experts to do a feasibility study for inclusionary housing? Cincinnati is embarrassingly behind in this area. Detroit, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Nashville, Bloomington, Durham and New Orleans have smartly joined most major cities in realizing inclusionary housing policies, while we’re stuck on misguided theory and myths.

Why are we still wasting public incentives on market-rate units? Why are we subsidizing "workforce" units, or those at the upper end of HUD’s affordability scale that don’t match our needs? City households, like mine, at or above 80% of the metro Area Median Income are already living in housing that is affordable to us by federal standards. 

Why are we on the "all housing matters" train to nowhere? 

Because it’s hard to challenge profit-seeking, and most officials would rather pass. When real solutions come within reach, distraction is a key tactic. Experts on profit-maximizing growth have asserted themselves as experts on good housing policy, and persuaded us that this is simply about overall supply and demand, instead of the discrimination of the market. They count on us to sleep well, believing that investing in luxury housing is equivalent to investing in housing for working-class people, but we have to wake up.

This cannot be the best that our supposedly progressive City Council can do. Let’s move them to do something actually significant before the moment passes us by."
Summer 360 would not be possible without our wonderful summer staff! Our teachers, admins, interns, bus drivers, and program managers each show a deep level of caring and nurturing for the children we serve. Thank you all!! 💛

A recent CityBeat article discussed the rising costs of rent and unaffordable markets across the nation. Just in the past year, the rent of a two-bedroom unit in Cincinnati has gone up by 21.4%. At a time where rent prices are growing faster than wages, COVID cases are increasing, and residents from big cities are fleeing due to the cost of living, affordable housing is needed now more than ever.
