10 Units of Affordable Rental Housing Open on State Street

The Santa Barbara Community Housing Corporation celebrates with a ribbon-cutting ceremony

The Santa Barbara Community Housing Corporation hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Supervisor Janet Wolf and Mayor Marty Blum on Thursday at 2843 State St. to celebrate the addition of 10 units of affordable rental housing.

SBCHC owns and manages about 300 units. Since 1975, it has completed 34 low- and moderate-income housing projects totaling 692 units throughout Santa Barbara County.

“I’m proud to have been associated with SBCHC for more than 30 years as an interested community activist and then a board member,” founding SBCHC member Clare Conk said. “In those years, SBCHC has provided low-cost homes for seniors, single mothers, people with disabilities, moderate-income families and low-wage workers. We are pleased to present this new project as another gift to our community.”

SBCHC finances its projects through a variety of private/public partnerships, city, county, state and federal loans and grants for project development, site acquisition, construction and permanent financing.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
