The Smith River Rancheria’s new six unit See-waa-dvn (rock beside) Senior Housing Project is scheduled to be completed this summer. There are six homes exclusively for our elder or handicapped households and their certified In Home Support Services (IHSS) Worker, should they need one. This project is a US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded project. This means the units will be for low income seniors. The rent will be calculated individually based on income. No more than thirty percent of each person’s adjusted income can be charged for rent.
Once the homes are complete, the elders currently living in Smith River Rancheria units, and qualify, will be given first opportunity to move into the new units. The remaining new units will be filled, based on the current waiting list.
Please stop by the Tribal Office and pick up or call and request one be sent. It is a new year. If you have an application on file, please call and up-date your information. I look forward to working with each of you in completing your applications.
