It is also part of a $2 billion investment Brown secured in December in order to bolster the HHF as part of the year-end government funding bill, according to an announcement from Brown.“This new funding will go a long way toward helping Ohio communities and homeowners that are still recovering from the devastation of the foreclosure crisis,” said Brown, ranking member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. “When one home is foreclosed on or abandoned, it has a ripple effect that hurts the value of other homes in the neighborhood. Getting rid of abandoned properties helps to strengthen neighborhoods and reduce crime. I will continue fighting to ensure that Ohio gets its fair share of resources through the Hardest Hit Fund.”“Getting rid of abandoned properties helps to strengthen neighborhoods and reduce crime.”U.S. Senator Sherrod BrownOhio will be awarded a direct infusion of $97.6 million from the HHF to put toward foreclosure mitigation and blight demolition. In addition, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) is eligible to apply for another $250 billion through the HHF. Since 2010, largely through Brown’s efforts, the HHF has awarded more than $570 million to Ohio, which has helped nearly 25,000 homeowners in the state. OHFA has until March 11, 2016 to apply for the additional funding. Along with the additional TARP funding announced by Treasury last month, Treasury also announced that it is extending the drawdown date for the funding from 2017 to 2020.The subject of eliminating blight by reducing the amount of time that properties stay vacant was called an “issue of national concern” by Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado due to the potential of vacant properties to attract squatters, vandalism, and violent crime. Last month, Delgado met with HUD Secretary Julián Castro to discuss the issue. In November 2015, Delgado delivered opening remarks and moderated two panels—one on transforming blighted communities—at the National Property Preservation Conference (NPPC) in Washington, D.C. In his opening remarks at the NPPC, Delgado called for national solutions for what the vacant and abandoned properties issue and praised Ohio State Bill H.B. 134, a fast-track foreclosure bill aimed at expediting the foreclosure crisis.The bill passed in the Ohio House by a unanimous vote in November and is currently awaiting a vote in the Ohio State Senate. Delgado called Ohio State Bill H.B. 134 “an important template towards the introduction of a national course of solution for vacant and abandoned properties.” Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Thousands of other items were packed up and sent to Bryant’s widow, Vanessa Bryant, at her request. The February 24 date, a Monday, falls the day between two Lakers home games, and reports indicated it would take place early enough in the day to allow a Clippers to host a scheduled home game against the Memphis Grizzlies that evening. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Los Angeles will host a public memorial on February 24 at Staples Center for NBA icon Kobe Bryant and eight others killed last month in a helicopter crash, US media reported Thursday. The Los Angeles Times, citing two unnamed sources, and CNN, citing a source close to the Bryant family, were among the outlets reporting the event, which had not been officially announced. People gather around a makeshift memorial for former NBA and Los Angeles Lakers player Kobe Bryant near the Staples Center, where a public memorial reportedly will be staged on February 24 The Los Angeles Lakers – the club where Bryant starred for 20 seasons – Staples Center, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office did not immediately confirm the event was planned. The “2-24” date would carry some symbolism – Bryant wore the No. 24 jersey in the later stages of his career and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, who also died in the crash, wore No. 2 for her school basketball team. Staples Center, the home arena of both the Lakers and the rival Los Angeles Clippers, as well as a concert venue, has hosted memorials for recording artists Michael Jackson and Nipsey Hussle. The Lakers themselves paid emotional tribute to Bryant there in their first game after the club legend’s death, when they hosted the Portland Trail Blazers. Fans mourning Bryant had made the area outside Staples a spontaneous shrine, leaving mountains of flowers along with basketballs, jerseys, stuffed animals and other mementoes.
