Housing Development Organization To Develop a Small Multi-Family Home in Humboldt County

Redwood Coast Regional Center (RCRC) is seeking proposals for a Housing Development Organization (HDO), which can be either for profit or non-profit, to acquire and renovate a small multi-family home for use by adults who receive Family Teaching Home services in Humboldt County.  Funding for this project is provided by RCRC’s FY 23/24 Community Resource and Development Plan (CRDP) budget. Projects developed with these funds will support the following goals:

  • Expand the availability, accessibility, and types of services and supports to meet current and future needs of individuals and their families in the community.
  • Develop systems to ensure that quality services and supports in the least restrictive environment are provided to individuals in the community.
  • Develop services that are person-centered and represent the diversity of the regional center’s catchment area.

RCRC was awarded Start-up funding from the Department of Developmental Services in the amount of $500,000 ($225,000 for acquisition and $275,000 rehabilitation/renovation) to acquire and renovate a small multi-family home, to be developed as a Family Teaching Home. A “Family Teaching Home” means a home that has been approved by an Adult Family Home Agency (AFHA), wherein the family home provider and the client(s) have independent residences, either contiguous or attached, and in which services and supports are provided to a maximum of three clients regardless of their degree of disability, except for those clients who require continuous skilled nursing care as defined by California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Section 56076, subsection (e)(3).  The selected HDO will lease the acquired home to the AFHA service provider (selected by RCRC through a separate RFP process).
