The Rancho Sierra Affordable, Permanent Supportive Housing Development has been awarded for Best Practice by the APA Central Coast Section. The two-story, 50-unit development will serve the underserved, low-income senior population within the county. The development plan includes 4,000 square feet of indoor space for various programs, events, and services for the resident’s leisure. The plan has also taken transportation and agricultural screening into account, along with ample on-site amenities for the site’s livability. The proposed development emphasized compliance with California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, No Place Like Home, and SB 744 to better fund the project and accelerate the processing timeline. This project allows planners to better understand how to effectively utilize streamlining laws and obtain grant funds to ensure efficient project completion. Construction is intended to start Summer of 2022 and leasing is anticipated to begin fall of 2023.
