Extractions: State Buyout Arnold Lupus Missouri Flood Mitigation Project BACKGROUND The 1993 Midwestern flood was a record-breaker both in terms of river levels and duration. Of the nine Midwestern states affected, the State of Missouri was undoubtedly the hardest hit by the flood and state officials estimate that damages totaled $3 billion. Assistance to an estimated 37,000 Missouri families on that flood alone included $41.7 million spent in Disaster Housing (DH) assistance and $23.4 million in Individual and Family Grants (IFG) to those who were uninsured. An additional $40.1 million in low interest loans had been approved by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to cover disaster-related losses to homeowners and businesses. Add to these figures $7.8 million in disaster unemployment and $120 m illion in Public Assistance to repair damaged public facilities and the costs are obviously staggering. PROJECTS The Missouri Buyout Program received close to $100 million which flowed through the state to local communities.

Extractions: University of Memphis The question of government and morality is raised by public clashes over the proper role, if any, of government regulation of morals, or government fostering of things conducive to moral behavior. There are minimalist and maximalist views, akin to the failed ideologies of complete laissez-faire and full government ownership in the economic realm. Between the extremes, which have failed in the moral as well as the economic realm, there is a proper sphere for government support of morality, and institutions that produce virtue and civilized citizens. In particular, there is a need to restore authority to the family, moral education to the schools, and parental responsibility and choice in education. JIS VII 1995: 25-50 THE POLITICS OF LOVE: Institute for Interdisciplinary Research Western culture, at its best, has been a continuous effort to move from the low, the necessities of the body, toward the high, an eternity toward which all men aspire in their capacity for goodness. The purpose of politics, now understood as democracy, has been to regulate the low, the base desires that set men apart from each other. Politics, then, follows culture. But this linkage has been broken by the feminist demand for equality in romantic union, thus destroying the connection between lovers, family, and the culture which seeks to protect them. The attack on courtly love through the leveling of male and female relatedness is a vicarious effort to undermine hierarchical love, natural and divine.

Remember the first time you set out to find your own place to live? You began by considering your options. Apartment or house? One story or two? What could you afford? What neighborhood would you like? You narrowed down your options by looking through the ads and talking to friends. It was an exciting experience. For people with disabilities, however, housing options have been more limited. Today, state and federal laws are changing this. Who will benefit? All of us.

Homeless families with dependent children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population. In 1998, families comprised 38% of the homeless population. On any given night, approximately 100,000 children slept in emergency shelters, abandoned buildings, or on the street. A majority of these children are age six or younger. Among the causes and risk factors for family homelessness are: The growing gap between income and housing costs in many parts of the country. A sharp rise in the number of singleparent families living in extreme poverty from about 1 million in 1974 to 2.5 million in 1991. Trauma and interpersonal violence twothirds of homeless women report serious physical assault by a partner, twothirds experienced severe physical abuse as a child, usually by an adult caretaker, and 40% were sexually molested by age 12.

Extractions: USDA has declared June of 2002 National Homeownership Month. Homeownership has long been recognized as a key component of the "American Dream" and provides tremendous social and economic benefits to our society. Five families are working toward living that dream in Shelby County, Missouri. An event recognizing National Homeownership month was held in Shelbina on Tuesday, June 4, 2002. Gregory C. Branum, USDA Rural Development State Director for Missouri and Master of Ceremonies for the celebration, said, "I can't think of a better way to "kick off" Homeownership month than to recognize the success of these deserving families," Branum said. "They have worked very hard for many months on building their own home through the USDA Self-Help Housing Program." "I'm impressed with the dedication and commitment of the families to become homeowners," said Arthur A Garcia, Administrator of the USDA Rural Housing Service (RHS), shown here in the center of the photo, from Washington D.C. headquarters. "They demonstrate the success of working hard to achieve the American Dream." Also shown on the right, is Greg Branum, USDA Rural Development State Director for Missouri. The Self-Help Housing Program provides low and very-low income people in rural areas the opportunity to build their own home. A group of families and individuals work together under the guidance of a construction supervisor hired by a nonprofit housing organization grantee, like North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC). They perform 65 percent of all the construction work. By working together for about eight months they complete the homes at the same time. The hard work becomes their down payment commonly called "sweat equity."

Outline of Need: Young families, single parents, good hard working people, all in need of decent, safe housing. Shelby County, Missouri, a rural area, offered little hope for new homes for these families. Unable to pursue conventional lending, yet credit-worthy, and willing to work hard for their homes, these families turned to the Rural Development Self-Help Housing program. How Rural Development Helped: The Rural Development Self-Help Housing Program provides low and very-low income people in rural areas the opportunity to build their own home. The North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC), partnering with Rural Development, assisted these families in building their own homes. NECAC provides the technical assistance and Rural Development provides the loan funds for the house and lot. The families and individuals work together as a team with family members and friends on weekends and evenings after work to build each other's homes. The work was done under the guidance of NECAC's construction supervisor, funded by a Technical Assistance Grant from Rural Development. The families performed approximately 65 percent of all the construction work. By working together for about eight months they complete the homes at the same time. The hard work becomes their down payment commonly called "sweat equity."
