Models for Funding the Construction of Subsidized Housing Units for Homeless People

Funding the construction of subsidized housing units for homeless people is not hard, so long as a government has the political will to undertake that sort of project.

One model for funding the construction of subsidized housing units for homeless people would be that in which a loan is taken for the purpose. The loan can then be repaid using the rents (that is, the subsidized rents) that the homeless people in question pay once they get into the housing units. That is assuming that the homeless people in question can be rehabilitated, and empowered to be economically active, once they are lifted from the street life.

Another model for funding the construction of subsidized housing units for homeless people would be that in which tax money is used for the purpose. Is this a legitimate use of tax money? Well, that may be a question for discussion. But suppose we agree that tax money can be legitimately used to fund unemployment benefits (like those found at Njuifile, where folks make New Jersey unemployment claims online, once they get to login to www.njuifile.net claim benefits portal. Then it would follow that using tax money to fund subsidized housing units for homeless people would still be a legitimate use of such money.
