Dear Congressman Aguilar,
Inland Action is happy to offer support to National Community Renaissance of California (National CORE) in its request for federal funding for Fiscal Year 2022 and its economic mobility initiative for low-income residents. The CORE Academy, with its curriculum developed in partnership with Chaffey College, will provide employment training, mentoring and a pipeline to job placement for low-income residents. National CORE demonstrates its continued commitment to support the well-being and economic independence of its residents and the community at large by preparing individuals with the training necessary to enter the field of Property Management, Property Maintenance, and other related industries.
National CORE is an innovative affordable housing developer with a mission heart and a long history of transforming economically distressed communities. Building upon a 29-year history, National CORE has demonstrated professional results in building and managing high-quality affordable housing. Their commitment to long-term management of the properties benefits both the residents and the communities in which they build.
With dedication and commitment, National CORE provides social services on-site that can be a catalyst for change in the communities they serve. Whether helping residents elevate their health, well-being, and self-sufficiency through adult economic mobility, youth development programs or health and wellness education, whole neighborhoods have been transformed as a result of National CORE’s work of providing safe, stable housing and services onsite at its community centers.
We strongly support National CORE’s Appropriations funding request for Fiscal Year 2022. Educational opportunities and advancement of low- income residents can only be accomplished through the joint efforts of local organizations and the commitment of local, state, and federal resources. The benefits of direct workforce training programs and service-enriched high-quality affordable housing cannot be overstated.
