Karuk Tribe wins Low Income Housing Tax Credit award to build 30 new homes
HAPPY CAMP, Ca. (June 12, 2015) — The Karuk Tribe is moving forward with a 30-home new construction project in Yreka, thanks to a recent award of Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) from the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee (CTCAC). CTCAC awarded the project, Karuk Homes I, with $874,302 in federal LIHTCs and $3,409,157 in California state LIHTCs for the $11.4 million project, which is expected to start construction in early 2016.
The Karuk Tribe Housing Authority (KTHA), the Tribally Designated Housing Entity of the Karuk Tribe, is the developer of the project and will manage the design, construction, financing and leasing of the homes, which will provide much-needed affordable housing for some of the 97 households who are currently on KTHA’s waiting list. This will be Karuk’s first LIHTC project and was made possible by CTCAC’s Native American Pilot Apportionment, which was created last year.
