Chxi Musam Illihi:
This development was the first of four phases of a planned rental community for Tribal members of all income levels. The first 36 units were completed in the summer of 2003 and are targeted to low-income families. The apartments are designed around various landscaped garden-like common areas including a central pavilion area. The project consists of six "pods" of six units each, with a separate, semi-private sitting area located near each pod. All of the apartments are in full compliance with disabled accessibility regulations. The units are spacious, sized from 729 square feet for the one bedroom plan, all the way up to 1,873 square feet for the five bedroom plan. The homes are either stand alone or are duplex style in design. All units have appliances including washer and dryers, fenced private yards and assigned carports complete with an exterior storage. The outdoor area surrounding the homes boasts stunning views of Spirit Mountain, with interconnecting interior paths, and an additional pedestrian walkway surrounding the community. Common area exterior maintenance is provided by the Housing Authority.
The community, designed around a water feature, has a park with a covered court for sports and gatherings, and a play area for children. All of the apartments fully comply with disabled accessibility regulations. The homes are mostly duplex styles, though the five bedroom units are single-family dwellings. The apartments include all appliances and have assigned carports (garages for the premium market rentals), complete with exterior storage. The outdoor area surrounding the homes boasts stunning views of Spirit Mountain and the coastal range, with interconnecting interior paths and a pedestrian walkway throughout the community. Common area exterior maintenance is provided by the Housing Authority.
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Native American Programs, through two Indian Housing Block Grants funded through the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA).

The first 36 units are designated for families with incomes of 80% or less of the median income for the area. Annual income limits are posted here. Income limits change annually for this HUD funded portion of the project. Rental payments are based on 30% of the adjusted household income, and residents pay for their own utilities.
