QHA Homes # 3


The Quechan Housing Authority (QHA) will rehabilitate 26 single-family homes. QHA Homes #3 received a 2021 LIHTC award from the from the California Tax Credit Allocation Commission (CTCAC). This is QHA’s third LIHTC development.

QHA Homes #3 is a continuation of QHA Homes #2 and will rehabilitate nearly all remaining units in the Ironwood subdivision in Winterhaven, CA, within the Fort Yuma Indian Reservation. Residents will share the newly updated playground and community building in the subdivision.

Travois Design is the project architect and has incorporated several green building techniques in the rehabilitation scope to help lower energy use and costs. Each home will receive solar panels, increased wall and attic insulation, solar powered roof vents, high-efficiency HVAC systems and energy-efficient water heaters.

The 26 homes are intended for large families. Nine homes, which have three bedrooms and one bathroom, will be rehabilitated and receive a second bathroom. 10 homes with two bedrooms and one bathroom, will receive an additional bedroom and bathroom. And seven homes with four bedrooms and two bathrooms will be fully renovated.

QHA will act as the general contractor. Construction will begin on QHA Homes #3 immediately after work on QHA Homes #2 is completed.
