@brightneedle There was a scheme like that in Detroit for a while after the crash. City rather than community-based though, so I think it was mostly hipsters.
@brightneedle The local Black Lives Matter group in my city is doing stuff like this! They have limited bandwidth from donors/money/volunteers, but they own a couple houses like this, and are rehabbing them one at a time.
@brightneedle There used to be a project like this in Iowa City, I think, where the community / University would fix up single-family homes and rent them out / sell them for cheap to new and visiting faculty.
@sabrams that’s pretty cool! Although even better might be selling them for cheap to others in community. But still, rad
