Cook Inlet Housing Complex
About CIHA Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) was founded in 1974 by the Alaska Legislature to insure elders, individuals and families in the 36,000-square-mile area of Cook Inlet Region, Inc. (CIRI) would have access to quality, affordable housing. Our Mission CIHA’s mission is to provide quality housing that promotes healthy communities, economic development, independence and partnering. The Authority’s housing programs are designed to empower clients and to encourage their transition toward self-sufficiency through homeownership or affordable rental housing. The authority employs more than 60 people who work as a team to offer four primary housing programs and operate a total of 327 units of rental housing located in Anchorage, Kenai, Seldovia and Ninilchik. We’re a dynamic group always working to improve our products and services as well as develop new and better ways to address not just housing needs in Anchorage, but the housing needs of all Alaskans. Our Clients CIHA serves a culturally diverse population living at or below 80% of the area median income. More than 30 percent of the entire population of Anchorage is currently living at or below 80% of the median income, and more than 50% of the area’s native population falls under these same guidelines making them eligible for many of CIHA’s programs. Our Relationship with CIRI CIHA is one of five affiliated non-profit organizations of Cook Inlet Region Incorporated (CIRI), an Alaska Native Corporation with a mission of fostering the economic, social and cultural well-being of its shareholders and their descendants. CIHA is the tribally designated housing entity (TDHE) for CIRI. Program Funding CIHA receives much of its funding through the Native American Housing and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA), which is national legislation designed to meet the critical housing needs of Alaska Natives and American Indians. In this regard, CIHA’s challenge is to create neighborhoods and communities that foster and celebrate cultural diversity.
