I recently finished up a great week in Camp Verde, Ariz., visiting the Yavapai-Apache Nation. Yavapai is currently finishing construction on their fourth Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) project, and the homes are beautiful!
I have included some pictures so that you can see the homes with the solar panels on the roofs, as well as a few interior shots. The electric meters on the units that are completed are already running backward as a result of the solar panels!
The project also has a resident manager unit, which will house a tribal police officer and his family — they are very excited about moving into their new home.
Yavapai is working on an updated homeownership program that will provide incentives for tenants in the new housing project that will apply to the purchase price of the home once the initial 15-year tax credit compliance period is completed.
If any of you ever have the opportunity to visit the beautiful Camp Verde area in the future, please stop by the Yavapai-Apache Nation Tribal Housing Department and ask someone to show you around the Tunlii development, which is right next to the housing office.
Tunlii has units from two of Yavapai’s LIHTC projects, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act units, Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee units, and privately-built homes. Every home has a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and the subdivision. It also helps that Camp Verde is several degrees cooler than the temperatures you usually find in Phoenix.
