Los Adobes de Maria

1026 W. Boone St, Santa Maria, California 93458

Completed in 1995, Los Adobes de Maria, Santa Maria, California, is a complex of 65 affordable 2-story townhouses rented exclusively to families earning a substantial portion of their income from agricultural employment. This project was created with the assistance of a broad base of support, including USDA Rural Economic and Community Development, HUD, City of Santa Maria, Santa Barbara County, & the State Department of Housing and Community Development.

The townhouses range from two to five bedrooms to accommodate a wide range of family sizes. Los Adobes de Maria also features the Cesar Chavez Community Building and a specially-designed child care facility in which the Santa Barbara Community Action Commission operates a Head Start program.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

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.

Section 515 Rural Rental Housing

This property has received funding in part through the Section 515 Rural Rental Housing (Section 515) program. Very low, low, and moderate income families, elderly persons, and persons with disabilities are eligible to live at this property. Persons or Families living in substandard housing have priority for tenancy.

Section 521 USDA Rental Assistance

The property participates in the USDA Rural Development Rental Assistance program. This rental subsidy, available only to USDA Section 514, 515 and 516 properties, ensures renters only pay 30% of their adjusted income towards rent. USDA Rural Development Rental Assistance may not be available for all units at this property.

Los Adobes de Maria is managed by Peoples Self-Help Housing.
