The AVCP Region
The AVCP (Calista) Region

Who are we?


The Association of Village Council Presidents Regional Housing Authority (AVCP RHA) was founded to address the housing needs of the AVCP region. The AVCP region contains 56 tribes in the Bethel and Kusilvak Census Areas. AVCP RHA Serves 48 communities in the region which is approximately the size of the state of Illinois. The region and the villages are only accessible by air.

AVCP RHA has constructed over 1,700 single family units in the communities, and rental properties in 19 communities. AVCP RHA provides affordable housing opportunities and programs for the AVCP region including homeownership, rentals, rental vouchers, housing services, housing management, and crime prevention.

AVCP RHA utilizes a force account program in the construction of new houses/apartments, modernization of its current assisted stock, renovation and weatherization of privately-owned homes. The force account crews are hired from the region; trained and given oppotunities to gain skills and experience.

The Association of Village Council Presidents Regional Housing Authority is the Tribally Designated Housing Entity (TDHE) for 51 tribes under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1995(NAHASDA).
