Build 128 multifamily housing units of 800 – 900 square feet each.
Offer these new housing options at affordable rent rates to farmworkers and their families
IFHA, Inc. proposes to help farmworker families by lifting them from the burden of high rents and poverty by building 128 housing units. This will help protect these families from the unfair practices of rent-gouging by landlords. This project shows compassion and helps to treat these hardworking families with dignity while creating a safe, healthy environment for the children.
First Step: Land
Second Step: Due Diligence
Third Step: Builder
Fourth Step: PUD
Site Plan The conceptual site plan below, with a zoning density of 14 units per acre, will incorporate open space, a playground and a building with a laundry room and multi-purpose space that can be used as a community meeting room as well as early learning and computer assisted learning after school classrooms.
The building is projected to begin: 2020 and buildings will be erected in phases as funds are raised
We need to raise $535,000 to purchase the land we have under contract. This covers the price of the property, plus closing and due diligence costs. The acquisition of the property is projected to be completed by December 31st, 2019.
Once the land is purchased, IFHA will need to raise $10-13 million for site development, infrastructure and to building.
Having a safe, affordable home is critically important for all of us and yet the people who harvest our food and their children lack this basic human need.

How will these units remain affordable?
These units will be affordable rentals. These affordable rentals are made possible because we are a 501(3)(c) and do not have to provide a return on investment, do not have to pay real estate taxes and will not have mortgage expense.
- No mortgage
- No monetary return on investment
- Low risk level
How will this community be sustained?
- Affordable rent rates cover property and unit maintenance, a management company and a reserve for rental assistance
- Built with 100% donated funds and grants
- Building will occur as funds are raised
- Low Maintenance
- Low Insurance costs because of architectural design
