In commissioning our firm to author this guide, the Corporation for Supportive Housing sought to produce a manual for California that “offers some basic information about the laws that pertain to supportive housing and sets out ways to identify and think through issues so as to make better use of professional counsel. It also offers reasonable approaches to resolve common dilemmas.”

Local government entities have always needed tools for community economic development work, and with the demise of redevelopment agencies and the ongoing employment and public budget shortfalls,  this need has only increased.  As a service for our clients, Goldfarb & Lipman published a brochure that summarizes remaining federal and state financing and land use tools that can be used to support economic development activities and provides case studies that illustrate how these programs can be layered together to finance new projects.  We are pleased to make this publication available to a broader audience and hope that you will find it to be a useful resource.   Development Beyond Redevelopment Brochure
