The Low-Income Rental Program was created due to the large number of applicants who were unable to qualify for new single-family housing. 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 currently 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 applicant’s rent is based on their income (15% in villages, 30% in Bethel) OR the fair market value of the unit. As an eligible NAHASDA Title II Affordable Housing Activity, low-income rentals offer member tribes opportunities to provide a starting point for those who otherwise cannot meet the requirements for our home ownership programs.
