Description

From Introduction:

America is experiencing an acute shortage of housing for
the last four decades. To deal with this housing menace j the
government started giving assistance for the construction and
rehabilitation of the housing units. All assistance has been
channeled through five programs: low-rent public housinng and
rent supplements directed towards low-income fami es mortgage
assistance, rental assistance, and subsidized loans for
rural and small-town borrowers directed toward lowerfamilies.
Bradley Park and Mt. Olive I'1anor (BP/lvIOJl.1) are two
family projects constructed under such federally-ass ted
programs. Due to
economic environment
of management capabilities and so
ng the context of the project
BP/MOM defaulted a few years after its completion and became
a property of the Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD). This study is an analysis of the history of
leading to the current situation and possible financial/
managerial alternatives which could ameliorate this and
similarly troubled projects into posi ve neighborhood communities
of low-to-moderate-income fami es.

This report was prepared by a study group consisting of
two graduate students at the University of Illinois. l To
achieve the objectives put forward by the study, the group
utilized the class discussions and the invaluable assistance
2
of the guest speakers of wide and diverse backgrounds. 0,
library resources and available literature surveys have been
used to provide much of the background and s stical
mation for the project.
The paper initi discusses the background of B
Park and Mt. Olive Manor. Recommended disposition proposal
BP/MOM is followed by various financial and managerial alternatives.
Finally, the study group's recommendations for an
overall solution is presented. An appendix made up of
charts, maps, and statistics is a d to the
study in perspective.
