After 113 years in the Santa Barbara community, Grace Lutheran Church will begin a new chapter with Grace Village Apartments, a new housing community for low income seniors. The A-frame church and land at 3869 State Street was gifted to the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara in December, 2014 for co-development with Front Porch Development Company of the 58-unit affordable housing complex. Due to its proximity to local amenities including public transportation, medical facilities, and marketplaces, and greatly reduced parking requirements per City approvals, Grace Village Apartments incorporates a NO VEHICLE restriction for residents. That is, units are rented to occupants that do not own, use or possess a vehicle. The community, designed by RRM Design Group, features 58 one-bedroom residences and an on-site resident manager, a community room, leasing office, maintenance area, laundry room on each floor and two elevators serving all of the floors with interior corridors and all entries ADA accessible.

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Grace Village Apartments is managed by Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara.
