On July 21, SAHA, along with the Oakland Housing Authority, celebrated the grand opening of Lakeside Senior Apartments, 92 affordable homes for low-income and formerly homeless seniors in the Eastlake District of Oakland. Check out this great photo essay of this LEED Platinum building in the Contra Costa Times.
This summer brought important funding news! Camino 23, SAHA's newest project on International Boulevard received an Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) award, better known as "cap and trade" funds. The Strategic Growth Council (SGC) endorsed 28 projects totaling $121.9 million from the state's Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund.
SAHA's Tabora Gardens and Valley View were 2 of the 17 projects throughout California (and the only Bay Area projects) that will receive funding through Proposition 41 and the Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Program (VHHP).
