CLEVELAND, November 12, 2021 /3BL Media/ – KeyBank Community Development Lending and Investment (CDLI) has provided $40.6 million dollars for the development of Finca Serena in Porterville, Calif. The blended occupancy property will offer permanent supportive housing to unhoused individuals and families in Tulare County.
KeyBank provided a $23.1 million construction loan and a $2.5 million permanent loan, as well as $15 million in low-income housing tax credit equity to UPholdings, LLC, and Self-Help Enterprises to build the property. UPholdings, based in Lincolnwood, Ill., is an affordable housing development and management company; Self-Help is a nationally-recognized community development organization based in Visalia, Calif.
The development received support from the California Department of Housing and Community Development, which awarded the project $17 million in funding under the California No Place Like Home (NPLH) Program and the HOME Program. The property will include a total of 80 units, 39 of which will be restricted at 60% of area median income (AMI). A further 39 units will be restricted at 15% and 30% of AMI and benefit from 20-year rental subsidies from the Kings/Tulare Homeless Alliance under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Continuum of Care Program and the Tulare County Health and Human Services Agency under the NPLH Program, as well as a Capitalized Operating Subsidy Reserve. The County of Tulare will provide mental health and other supportive services to residents for 20 years.
Finca Serena will include two three-story buildings with an on-site leasing office, multi-purpose community room with a kitchen, supportive services office, computer lab, one elevator, ADA accessible restrooms, central air conditioning, five laundry rooms, picnic areas with barbecue pits, and a playground. Its off-street parking comprises 110 stalls, including 64 carports and 46 open spaces with 10 accessible stalls. The development also includes solar panels to minimize electricity costs.
