The Housing, Community and Law Clinic is introducing several new-to-Israel affordable housing project concepts. Using Israel’s 2005 National Contour Plan 38 in combination with intensive community work to create and promote innovative affordable housing opportunities for underprivileged Jewish and Arab residents of Jaffa. NCPlan No. 38 encourages tenants living in buildings not in accordance with current seismic damage standards to use tax incentives and other tools to strengthen their buildings. The Clinic is working to ensure current tenants are not evicted during renovation and secure financing for new long-term rental units at market and submarket prices.
