CURE sponsors graduate student research on Calculating Affordable Housing Accountability

CURE is sponsoring MPA student Brian K. Everett to conduct the following study this Fall:

“This project will apply the previously announced rules for the construction of affordable housing units given by COAH to all of the 37 municipalities in Camden County. The goal is to show what Camden County’s affordable housing image should look like as of 2014 if the rules had been followed and enforced. My hypothesis is that Camden County should display a more distributed total of affordable units based upon COAH’s formulaic guidelines, rather than 75% of the County’s responsibility existing in Camden City alone.”  B.K. Everett

American Winter

Filmed over the course of one winter in one American city, the film presents an intimate snapshot of the state of the nation’s economy as it is playing out in millions of American families, and highlights the human consequences of the decline of the middle class and the fracturing of the American Dream.Directors: Harry GantzJoe Gantz
