Raising the Roof on Affordability
ARCH has launched a second line of business that directly assists our moderate-income households—those who earn too much for federally funded housing but not enough to live here. Private funding is making housing more accessible to our workforce and allows us to partner with specific industries and employers. Using private funds and partnerships, ARCH is delivering housing for the workforce.
The Project Pipeline
It's bigger than you think!
ARCH is constantly working towards bridging the housing affordability gap. At any given time, ARCH has developments in every stage of the pipeline. The entire process takes at least two years, but often up to five years.
Identify & Purchase Land
1 Month to Several Years
The development process begins with identifying and purchasing land.
3 to 6 Months
The land is entitled, which means it goes through the city approval process.
Housing Design Process
3 to 4 Months
ARCH designs the housing process. This includes architecture and engineering.
Building Permit Process
ARCH submits the designs to the county for a building permit
Materials begin to arrive and construction follows once a permit is acquired.
Family Moves In
The full process takes anywhere from two to five years after the initial purchase of land.
Using private philanthropy and partnerships, ARCH is delivering housing for the workforce. Projects underway include partnerships with:
St. Lukes Wood River
12 homes for hospital employees
Blaine County School District
Six to eight homes
The City of Bellevue
Duplex property development
$990K workforce housing initiative partner
