LOW INCOME HOUSING

Over 42% of Texas families have incomes less than 30% of the area median family income. That is a yearly income of less than $14,688 for a family of three living in Dallas, TX.

To solve the low-income housing crisis, we must set priorities, leverage community resources, and provide adequate financial resources.

Michael Cooper will make single-dwelling housing more affordable and the purchasing of homes easier for Section 8 tenants. He will call this the phase out "8" act. The number eight also means “new beginnings” in Hebrew and we want to give those people a new start in life.

Michael Cooper will work with government agencies to get the necessary assistance needed to deal with the mental illnesses of both the homeless and veterans of Texas.
