Naming Rights To Fund Tiny Homes For The Homeless
We Will Maximize Public Private Partnerships to Eradicate Homelessness, Poverty and Despair:
Until we include all Nevadans in the fabric of our society we will not have stable communities and will not maximize the size and scope of our workforce. When it comes to housing, we have to prioritize our efforts to end Homeless.
Therefore, I propose the development of Tiny Home Communities throughout Nevada. These sustainable tiny homes would serve as a bridge for some, and a permanent resident for others.
This effort to end homelessness can be conducted under the auspices of the newly announced "Home Means Nevada" program, which leverages $500 million in federal American Rescue Plan money to create more affordable housing in Nevada.
Under my administration, a portion of those resources, coupled with contributions from Private Partners, would be the basis for the development of Tiny Home Communities.
Nevada would not surrender any autonomy, or allow contributors any controlling authority or involvement in Tiny Home development, administration, or the tenant application, enrollment, or selection process. However, we would provide opportunities for local businesses, national businesses, and organizations, to attach their name or brand to various segments and aspects of Tiny Homes communities. From the overall community itself, to the streets and parks, and facilities located therein, their brand can be prominently displayed.
These so-called "Naming Rights" communities, situated strategically throughout the state, would allow for the development of modern, state of the art tiny housing structures. These communities would provide additional safety and stability. They would ensure the greater productivity, and societal participation of those capable members of our burgeoning homeless population.
The Naming Rights funds would provide branding and marketing opportunities like those afforded companies that place their names on skyscrapers, stadiums, or associate themselves with sports tournaments, all around the world.
The acquired Naming Rights Revenue would not be integrated into any aspect of the current Human Services budget.
