Housing and Community Development

Michael Baker has worked with numerous agencies to develop and implement effective housing and community development projects, programs, and plans. We help local governments secure resources for housing, jobs, community development and redevelopment, providing long-range planning tools such as needs assessments, strategic plans, goals and policies. Using our team’s experience with state, regional and local agencies across the nation, we prepare housing elements, economic plans, organizational strategies, consolidated and action plans, analyses of impediments and redevelopment implementation plans. Michael Baker writes and administers federal and state grant and loan programs, including CDBG, Neighborhood Stabilization Programs (NSP), HOME, Housing Trust Funds and Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.
