Grant benefits farm worker housing project in Woodland

From page A4 | August 02, 2013 |

Mutual Housing California recently received two grants from NeighborWorks America, totaling $339,500.

A $233,750 capital grant and a $105,750 expendable grant will allow the Sacramento nonprofit to continue developing new property in Woodland, rehabilitate older properties in South Sacramento and acquire a new property in Stockton.

“Both organizations have strong commitments to ensuring that Sacramento families have a variety of affordable housing opportunities in safe, clean and energy-efficient environments,” Rep. Doris Matsui, D-Sacramento, said in a news release. “I applaud their work in helping families in need and moving Sacramento forward.”

Part of the capital grant will go toward the construction of Mutual Housing at Spring Lake in Woodland, one of the first zero-net-energy developments for agricultural workers in the nation. Energy-efficient design will bring energy use down to the bare minimum for the very low-income residents, and a photovoltaic system at the 62-apartment and townhouse complex is expected to supply it.

“I am pleased that this grant will help bring solar energy systems to developments in Yolo County and that they are manufactured in America,” Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, added in the release. “California is leading the way in solar power and energy-efficient design that is the wave of the future.”

As a state legislator, Garamendi authored the first state clean energy tax credit. He also is the author of HR 1524, the bipartisan Make It In America: Create Clean Energy Manufacturing Jobs in America Act.

The act requires that clean energy goods and equipment used in projects purchased or paid for by federal taxpayer dollars contain 85 percent American-made content. The photovoltaic system installed at Spring Lake will be made in America.

Founded in 1988, Mutual Housing California develops and operates rental housing for low-income households. Its communities house 3,000 residents. For more information, visit www.mutualhousing.com.
