Within the fund, three investments have been initiated to help provide supportive housing for individuals experiencing homelessness and populations displaced by natural disasters. David Leopold, VP of Targeted Affordable Sales & Investments at Freddie Mac, said that the “National Equity Fund has a more than 30-year track record of making investments that help the most underserved communities, and Freddie Mac is very proud to aid that mission through one of our LIHTC Equity funds.” The investments we have made through the fund thus far are making home possible for those displaced by Hurricane Harvey and individuals experiencing homelessness in some of the most housing-challenged communities in the country.”A $15 million LIHTC equity investment in Houston’s New Hope Housing’s Dale Carnegie development will provide housing and supportive services to 170 individuals and families displaced by Hurricane Harvey. The other two are aimed at helping the homeless and Veterans in the Los Angeles area. One is for Skid Row Housing in Los Angeles for an estimated 100 homeless veterans and special needs individuals. A $19.6 million LIHTC equity investment in Skid Row Housing Trust’s Flor 401 Lofts development will provide both housing and supportive services. The other, A $26.5 million LIHTC equity investment in Hollywood Community Housing’s Florence Mills Apartments, will help provide supportive housing South Los Angeles, an area with a very high homeless rate. Thirteen of the 74 units will be designated for homeless veterans.More than 20 million households across the country pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing. Eleven million are paying more than 50 percent of their income for housing. Freddie Mac and NEF are working together to address this vast and growing need through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program. This effort is designed to make homes possible for millions of families and individuals by providing mortgage capital to lenders. Read more here.

JOCKEY QUOTESSANTIAGO GONZALEZ, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “She’s a superior horse. She runs in better races than these other horses regularly and she showed her class today.“She has a lot of speed. I can wait and wait with her and I know she can still get there with her speed.” KENT DESORMEAUX, VELVET MESQUITE, SECOND: “She’s not fond of soft ground. I think she ran her eyeballs out but she got beat a nose in a situation she doesn’t care to be in. Not to mention, she’s been off a while so I don’t think it would have mattered as much if she was racing with one under her belt.“Her future is very bright. She’s coming back from a laceration on her hind end as well and that always causes concern. You can wonder if she’ll be the same. Well, she’s the same.” JULIEN LEPAROUX, AGELESS, THIRD: “No real excuses. The course is the same for everybody. She had a little layoff, but she ran her race. It looks like she came back good and hopefully, she’ll be good for the rest of the year.”TRAINER QUOTES JAMES CASSIDY, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “I didn’t think she’d have any problem (coming down the hill for the first time) unless she started idling trying to figure out what the heck this is all about, which she has a tendency to do.“But being that he (Santiago Gonzalez) had her surrounded, she didn’t have any time to think about that, so that was a good thing. I was a little upset we were that close, but when it opened for her, he rode her perfect, and she’s a hard horse to ride. You could see down the lane she was out there in the clear and kind of looking around, so she can be difficult, but she got it done.“Gonzalez is really a good rider. If he keeps finding his skills, he’ll be one of the best riders here, if he isn’t close to that already.” ARNAUD DELACOUR, AGELESS, THIRD: “I thought everything went pretty good. She had a good trip and she was finishing, so we’re pretty happy with the race she ran.” NOTES: The winning owner is Deron Pearson of Valencia who campaigns as DP Racing. Cassidy indicated the Grade II Buena Vista Stakes at one mile on turf Feb. 20 would be next.
I say [email protected]: Why is Jared Cook off the field so often?The Raiders ran the ball 33 times for 152 yards against the Cardinals, both single-game highs this season. Lee Smith and Derek Carrier are more run-blocking … Time for only the second post-victory mailbag of the season, folks. How does that sound?In this one, we talk Jared Cook’s usage, the 2019 running back situation, Tom Cable and much more.Let’s get it [email protected]__wavypuz: How many years till a winning season lol
Tihar Jail gives jobs only to convicts. So Manu Sharma is the unofficial Chief Financial Officer of Indias largest jail; former Youth Congressman Sushil Sharma, Naina Sahni’s killer, who walks around Jail No. 2 in a daze, helps others in legal cases as does Santosh Singh, who was convicted in,Tihar Jail gives jobs only to convicts. So Manu Sharma is the unofficial Chief Financial Officer of Indias largest jail; former Youth Congressman Sushil Sharma, Naina Sahni’s killer, who walks around Jail No. 2 in a daze, helps others in legal cases as does Santosh Singh, who was convicted in the Priyadarshini Mattoo murder. Now not to be ghoulish, but seeing the talent that is accumulating there, may I suggest an alternative establishment, to ensure the famous undertrials have something to do through a long, hot summer? It would help a jail which has to house nearly double its capacity and it would certainly help their public image. So herewith, a list mixing youth and experience.Minister of Telecommunications: A. Raja. He’s the most comfortable of the undertrials. He will perform best given he has both his former PA P.K. Chandolia and former telecom secretary Siddharth Behura for company.Minister of Culture: Kanimozhi. The experience she has gained both as a poet and as the brain behind the formerly five star cultural event Chennai Samagam should stand her in good stead.Minister of State for Internal Security: R.K. Sharma, given life imprisonment in the Shivani Bhatnagar case, was a senior police officer in his other life.Minister of State for External Affairs: Well, we’ve been told she’s not to be trusted but the advantage is she knows our neighbour well, having spent time in Pakistan. Who else but former second secretary Madhuri Gupta for the job?Ministers of Urban Development: This portfolio has to be shared between two experienced gentlemen. Tihar is overcrowded and needs better facilities. No more three people to a cell and 50 people to a barrack. Sanjay Chandra and Shahid Balwa, over to you. Balwa’s brother Asif, formerly cfo of DB Realty, could assist Manu Sharma.advertisementMinister of Agriculture: Vinod Goenka. His wealth began with his father’s dairy business in Baramati. He may also have had an opportunity to observe Sharad Pawar from close quarters. Manu Sharma can help, given the work he has put into the bonsai, cactus and herbal gardens in Jail No. 2.Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting: Who better than Sharad Kumar, MD of Kalaignar TV? Granted the tv channel was not too successful but perhaps he can look into the matter of inmates getting access to only 30 channels? Even prisoners need to be informed and entertained.Chief Secretary: ADAG md Gautam Doshi is an efficient executive, with the ability to remain calm under pressure. His colleagues, group president Surendra Pipara and group vice president Hari Nair, can help in reorganising the administrative set-up.Minister of State for Sport: Former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi? Or maybe not. The last thing we want is a scam inside Tihar. After all, where would he go next?
Former Indian batsman Venugopal Rao believes it was an unforgettable experience for him on his debut to face spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan.On Tuesday, Rao announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.The former middle-order batsman had made his international debut against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on July 30, 2005, a game which the hosts won by three wickets.Batting first, India had scored 205 runs out of which debutant Rao had scored 38 off 74 balls. Sri Lanka chased down the target with 10 balls to spare and took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.”Playing Muttiah Muralitharan on debut was an unforgettable experience,” Rao told ESPNcricinfo. “As batsmen, we grew up playing spin, but I felt nothing quite prepared you to face him. He was an exceptional bowler. I have fond memories of that game (even though India lost).”He represented India in 16 ODIs, the last of which came in May 2006 against West Indies at Basseterre.The 37-year-old, during his two-decade long career which effectively ended in 2017, had earned praise from then coach Greg Chappell and batted alongside legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.”Ahead of my India debut, I was a little nervous. Many thoughts ran through my mind. Greg had just taken up as coach, and he told me ‘Look, for me, where you come from doesn’t matter. I know you are good enough to be here, and that is why you are here.’ Those words gave me a lot of belief,” Rao said.Rao, who holds the distinction of being India’s first super-sub, also recalled how people in early 1990s used to laugh whenever a cricketer from Andhra had a desire to play for the national team.advertisement”In the early 1990s, they used to laugh whenever someone from Andhra desired to play for India. To be one of only two cricketers from the region (MSK Prasad being the other) to play for the country proved that you can achieve your goal,” he said.”To come from a fishing village near Visakhapatnam, where my father worked for a modest salary of Rs 7,000 to support five children, and playing was a big thing. All credit to my parents,” he added.He played 121 first-class matches scoring 7,081 runs, which included 17 hundreds and 30 fifties. He also played 65 IPL matches for Deccan Chargers, Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad between 2008 and 2014.

VICTORIA – The B.C. government had no choice but to complete the Site C hydroelectric dam rather than absorb a $4 billion hit to its bottom line by cancelling the project, which would have jeopardized plans for more spending on schools, hospitals and bridges, Premier John Horgan said Monday.The price tag for Site C is rising, with the $8.3 billion dam on the Peace River in northeast B.C. now estimated to cost $10.7 billion.The government estimated the $4 billion cost of terminating Site C would amount to $860 for each B.C. resident. Horgan said he could not ask people to take on such a debt and get nothing in return.The province also risked a credit downgrade and debt-servicing costs of up to $150 million annually if the project was cancelled. It could also mean a one time, 12 per cent rate hike that would last for a decade, Horgan said.“We have listened,” said Horgan. “We have deliberated and we have debated and at the end of the day we have come to the conclusion that although Site C is not the project we would have favoured, and it’s not the project we would have started, it must be completed to meet the objectives of our government.”The decision on the project’s future is one of the first major challenges the minority NDP government has faced since it came to power this summer.Site C has been at the centre of a polarized debate between politicians, environmentalists, First Nations, labour groups and landowners in the Peace River Valley.Horgan said he has met with Indigenous groups, construction workers, environmental activists and residents about Site C.“I can say without hesitation this is a very very divisive issue,” said Horgan, adding he and his wife have argued about the dam.The decision to complete Site C, which has been under construction for more than two years, caused intense debate in his caucus and cabinet, he said.The $4 billion cost of cancelling the project could fund 66 secondary schools or 11 hospital projects, 12 highway improvements or three bridges in Metro Vancouver, Horgan said.Former premier Christy Clark gave Site C the green light in December 2014, saying the decision to approve the province’s most expensive megaproject marked a historic milestone that would be felt for a century.Horgan said the Liberals have taken Site C to the point of no return.“They gave us, sadly, just one clear choice,” he said. “That was to proceed with a $10.7 billion project or cancel a project and absorb $4 billion in construction and remediation costs.”National Chief Perry Bellegarde of the Assembly of First Nations said Indigenous people will likely take the matter to court.“I am confident that First Nations will continue their efforts to stop Site C and the next step will be legal challenges,” he said in a statement.The government asked the B.C. Utilities Commission to determine if Site C would be finished by 2024 and on budget, while providing advice on proceeding with the project, suspending construction until 2024, or terminating it.The province’s independent energy regulator concluded in its report last month that the dam is over budget and behind schedule.The Opposition Liberals, who started Site C, applauded the NDP’s decision.“For the businesses, for the families, for the local First Nations in the area, this is the right decision,” said Mike Bernier, who represents Peace River South in the legislature.Green Leader Andrew Weaver said the decision could end up costing more than the new estimate of $10.7 billion.“Today, it’s $10.7 billion projected cost,” he said. “So, who believes the $10.7 billion? I certainly don’t.”Site C has been part of the province’s hydroelectric generation plans since 1958.It will be the third dam on the Peace River in northeastern B.C., flooding an 83-kilometre stretch of valley near Fort St. John. It will provide enough power to light up to 450,000 homes a year.BC Hydro’s environmental impact statement for Site C forecasts flooding more than 5,550 hectares of land, of which at least 3,800 hectares is agricultural. Site C would also flood Indigenous heritage sites and force up to 20 families, many lifelong ranchers, to move.
