Low-Income Rental Program

The Low-Income rental program was created due to the large number of applicants who were unable to qualify for new single-family housing. In realizing the needs of the region, AVCP RHA has invested in low-income rentals with the goal of easing the transition to home ownership programs, or traditional financing.

Our low income rental program currenty serves 11 communities in the AVCP (Calista) Region.

Our rental program consists of 147 units, in multi-family property arrangements (triplex structures).

Established with the intent of creating socio-economic stability for low-income families in our tribal communities, the low-income rental program is often the first step for families seeking to gain self-sufficiency.

How does the Low-Income Rental program work?

The low-income rental program is directly subsidized under the Indian Housing Block Grant. A successful applicants rent is based on their income (15% in villages, 30% in Bethel) OR the fair market value of the unit. As an eligibe NAHASDA Title II Affordable Housing Activity, low-income rentals offer member tribes opportunities to provide a starting point for those who otherwise can not meet the requirements for our home ownership programs.
