New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Assessing the Housing Need in the Latino Community.

Savage, Emily

Neighborhood Development Alliance was founded in 1989. Its mission is to strengthen the vitality of lower income neighborhoods within the city of St. Paul by creating and preserving housing and business opportunities for residents of all income levels. In the beginning, NeDA focused on developing and renovating housing and assisting homeowners with home repair projects on the West Side of St. Paul. Over time NeDA became a Latino-oriented organization in order to serve the Twin Cities Latino population. This came about through NeDA's development of a bilingual staff and a request, particularly from the State of Minnesota's Housing Finance Agency (MHFA) to broaden our services beyond the West Side boundaries. In addition to development projects on the West Side, NeDA now offers Homebuyer Education and Financial Literacy Workshops as well as one-to-one counseling, foreclosure prevention counseling, and homeowner rehab programs throughout the Twin Cities seven county metro area. Broadly defined, these services reach out to low to moderate income households. More specifically, NeDA's bilingual staff focuses its resources in serving the growing Latino community. As the Latino population in Minnesota and the Twin Cities Metro area continues to increase and expand geographically, NeDA seeks to assess current unmet needs and future challenges. The purpose of this project was to assess the past and future trends of the Latino population in Minnesota to help NeDA move strategically forward in serving the Latino community's housing and financial education needs.
