Regional Housing Authority Technical Support II
Regional Housing Authority Technical Support (updated 3/07)
In our advisory role to the Alaska Regional Housing Authorities, we help assess design and health issues, then submit requests to AHFC for funding consideration and approval. For instance, in the CIHA Mountain View Housing Study, we provided a modified Building America floor plan to the Ninilchik Housing Authority, which has been well accepted.
In a separate contract with HUD, we conducted a short survey of mold problems in Alaska Native Housing, which you can find here. CCHRC staff train Alaska Native Housing Authorities employees in mold remediation and visit housing they manage around the state.
Our newest focus is to establish a rural housing performance monitoring protocol by designing and deploying an instrumentation set in a REMOTE house in Kotzebue. All of this research has been funded by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation.
