Woo-Mehl LIHTC Homes

Klamath, California

The Yurok Indian Housing Authority (YIHA) will develop Woo-Mehl LIHTC Homes using an award of Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) from the 2019 first round.

It’s the first time the California Tax Credit Allocating Committee (CTCAC) awarded two tribal projects in the same round! (Read about the other award here.)

YIHA will add 17 housing units to the Yurok community. The development is divided between two sites on fee land within the Yurok Tribe Reservation near Weitchpec, CA.

Site 1 – Alvarez

YIHA will build 11 new housing units and community amenities on the Alvarez site:

  • 7 single-family units,
  • one fourplex,
  • a community building with a kitchen and business center,
  • a basketball court,
  • a covered pavilion and a fish smokehouse.

Site 2 – McCoy

About a mile away on the McCoy site, YIHA will rehabilitate six existing homes and build an additional covered pavilion and fish smokehouse.

Woo-Mehl LIHTC Homes will address the tremendous need for safe, decent and affordable housing that exists on the Yurok Tribe Reservation.
