Presenting our first Carson City completion… Valley Springs Apartments.
Northern Nevada Community Housing (NNCH) is proud to present the completion of its most recent newly constructed affordable housing complex, Valley Springs; 680 Hot Springs Road, Carson City. Valley Springs is excited to offer a Veterans Preference, supplying quality affordable living for our community’s Veteran population. In addition to this, Valley Springs has partnered with two locally based non-profit organizations to provide wrap-around case management and supportive services for families and individuals living with special needs. All units feature affordable rents at 50% AMI (annual median income) qualifying standards as set by HUD.
This 62 unit 3-story community with elevator access includes 36 two-bedroom units, and 26 one-bedroom units. The two-bedroom units are designed at 834 square feet, and the one-bedroom units at 654 square feet.
A place for Veterans
All units at Valley Springs carry a Veteran preference and NNCH will continue their successful partnership with Veterans Administration to ensure that Veteran households and Veterans with special needs are immediately referred to Valley Springs for their housing needs. Veterans Administration is a Federal based veteran service agency providing veteran programs. They strive to engage veterans and their families in a process of healing and growth that celebrates their individuality, identifies all barriers to success, mitigates those barriers, and challenges each participant to live to their utmost potential.
All tenants, regardless of their Veteran or Special Needs status, have access to social opportunities and tenant services organized by Valley Springs staff. NNCH is expanding services currently offered at other properties and will schedule Financial Literacy and Budgeting workshops through a partnership Wells Fargo Finance in the Community Room.
A community within a community
This contemporary architectural has been designed around a central, courtyard that offers recreation areas, play equipment and garden beds. The site features a Community Building that houses a resident gathering area, warming kitchen, library, and exercise room as well as computer center. Management and maintenance offices will also be located in the Valley Springs Community Building. Residents have ample on-site parking with 24-hour gated and secured access to corridors and stairs, security camera coverage and ample exterior lighting. The building has been designed to include the largest solar panel array we’ve installed to date, which is estimated by NV energy to be at net zero energy consumption, meaning Valley Springs will get all it’s energy from the sun.
This is low income housing
All 62 units are offered to individuals and families earning less than 50% of Area Median Income. A total of twelve units are identified as Special Needs units and marketed through Special Needs Partners seeking permanent housing for clients in their care. Rental assistance for special needs units has been awarded to NNCH by NRHA (Nevada Rural Housing Authority) to help ensure tenant success.
Affordable Housing in Northern Nevada
Northern Nevada Community Housing (NNCH) is a nonprofit 501c(3), established in 1989. In the beginning NNCH provided Fair Housing Training seminars to the Real Estate community. In 1994, in response to a request by the City of Reno, NNCH became a Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), which allowed it to develop, own, and manage affordable housing units.
NNCH also is available as a Property Management company to any nonprofit company in the Washoe County, Nevada area. Services can be as restricted as file certification for a Tax Credit property, to a full Property Management contract that includes maintenance and bookkeeping services. Management is experienced in HOME, AHP, and Tax Credit funded properties.
As a development and property management company, NNCH is always interested in the possibility of partnering with others to purchase, renovate, build, and manage properties that will increase Washoe County’s affordable housing stock.
