Affordable Housing Development | Johanna Anderson

On this week’s episode, we will be speaking with Johanna Anderson, Executive Director of Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services. We will be speaking about Founder’s Way, a major mixed-use project in downtown Ithaca, New York on the site of a former Catholic school. This project was purchased by INHS from the Immaculate Conception School at 320 West Buffalo St. in Ithaca from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester. The property will be redeveloped with the intention to create a mixed-use community that includes space for nonprofit and community-based organizations, and affordable rental housing serving a range of household sizes and income levels. 

Across the United States, historic and ongoing displacement, exclusion, and segregation have perpetuated racial disparities in real estate. Today we will also be discussing housing affordability as a national crisis across the United States at a broader level, including Johanna’s own experience as an affordable housing expert. Join us on this week’s episode as we talk about the Founder’s Way project as well as Johanna’s current work with Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services.
