      goal is to identify potential at-risk properties, to understand the
      factors influencing the decisions of the owners of the properties, and
      where possible to persuade the owners to preserve the affordability or

      and interest in disposing of the property.

      information.
      ? Create a comprehensive training manual that outlines the
      California Housing Partnership Corporation's Housing Preservation Outreach
      Project.
      ? Write a case study on a property whose affordability was
      preserved.
      ? Assist in analysis of Federal and/or State housing policy.
      ? Be part of a team of experienced, committed professionals working
      to create and preserve affordable homes for lower income Californians.
