Peace Be Unto You,
Dear Cambridge recently I submitted a project idea for Community Preservation ACT (CPA) Funding, it is in the Affordable Housing category. Following you will find a brief summary of my project idea, supporting documentations as attachments, and information about the local CPA project funding process. My project idea is as follows:

My project calls for the creation of a Tiny House Village ( a new part of the Tiny House movements) designed to house the Homeless (https://www.shareable.net/blog/11-tiny-house-villages-redefining-home). Tiny houses are inexpensive to buy and maintain; they require less energy and have a smaller carbon footprints; and they naturally encourage sharing and consuming less. This project calls for offering affordable housing to chronically homeless citizens in a Tiny House Village. The price of a Tiny House Village for the homeless will cost tax payers less than what it cost to not house the homeless. The creation of Tiny Houses for the homeless should be the next step toward solving homelessness in Cambridge, MA.

A Tiny House Village is a low-cost way to house the city’s homeless. A “tiny house” is defined as a small structure (from 70—200 square feet in size) designed to provide temporary shelter for the homeless, usually with insulation and electrical wiring but without bathroom or cooking facilities (although they are provided nearby). Tiny homes are usually intended to be used as an interim step until permanent housing is found. These small structures are viewed as being a better option than having people sleep on the streets or in tents, especially during the cold and wet winter months. Tiny houses are not an “end all” solution, but they are a low-cost method for housing the homeless, at least on a temporary basis, and this is one approach that Cambridge, MA should consider using when addressing homelessness in the future.
