Oroville Veteran Housing
The Oroville Veteran Housing project consists of the development of owner-occupied houses for veterans who lost homes and have been displaced during the tragic events of 2018 for both the Camp Fire in Butte County, and the Carr fire in Shasta County.
The first stage is rehabilitation of the existing homes. This stage provides the quickest turnaround for veteran’s families who were displaced by the fires and those most in need of affordable housing.
The second stage is construction of 12 brand new townhomes on the 2.3-acre infill property. We are currently in the process of building 10 two-bedroom, two bath units and 2 three-bedroom, 2 bath units on site.
Both stages of owner-occupied units are offered via Cal Vet pre-approved loans to veterans and their families. During the Camp Fire, almost 2,500 veterans who lost their homes were screened at all income levels. Of those, approximately 800 were below the 80% AMI level. We know through our local service center that many of these veterans are in less-than-ideal living situations.
The first homes are specifically targeted to meet the needs of those specific veterans’ families.
- Income falls below the 80% AMI level
- Must attend the following pre-move in trainings online:
- First-time home buyer course
- Budgeting course
- Home maintenance course
- Light case management for up to two years to ensure that the household is stable
