Rural Voices: A Place for Everyone

The Spring 1999 issue of Rural Voices highlights some of the rural housing community’s successes in providing a place for everyone.

“A Place for Everyone” – the theme of the recent National Rural Housing Conference – could serve as the motto for much of the rural housing community’s work. Every day, through many different activities, we try to ensure a decent, affordable place for those most often forgotten in our national housing efforts.

The Spring 1999 issue of Rural Voices highlights some of the rural housing community’s successes in providing a place for everyone. It reviews the December 1998 conference, including the awards HAC presented to five outstanding individuals for their rural housing work, and the winners of the children’s art contest held at the conference. Also, an article describes a collaboration between Freddie Mac, Rural Opportunities, Inc., and others to help create a place for everyone by providing mortgages for families who could not obtain conventional loans. Another piece explains how local rural housing developers can use Community 2020 mapping software to illustrate housing conditions and needs. Other recent developments and activities are summarized in the HAC Facts and View From Washington departments.

We look forward to continuing to work with you to provide a place for everyone.
