Programs

Emergency Rental Assistance Program and Homeowners Assistance

Thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, we were able to fund this crucial program which helps singles and families renting in Kodiak with their payments and prevents evictions for those struggling with COVID-related economic impacts. You’re not alone, find out if you qualify.

Affordable Rental Properties

We all know that rental prices in Kodiak are some of the highest in the nation. In fact, fair market rent in Kodiak is higher than 97% of other locations in the U.S.!* KIHA has over 200 first-rate rentals at affordable prices. We have rental programs for those who are Alaska Native/American Indian (AIAN), non-AIAN, 55 or more years old, and we even offer accessible units**. Units come in a variety of sizes and some offer resident services (after school programming, light housekeeping, etc.) Find your new home here.

Resident Services

For everyone living in KIHA properties, we have numerous services available. Take the Family Investment Center, which helps your children with rides, meals, and after school programs. Or the Life Builders transitional program which helps young adults pursue employment and education. You can build a better future, and we’re here to help.

Rental Assistance

You don’t have to live in one of our properties to get help from us. The Rental Assistance Program helps you pay a portion of your rent if you’re staying in the area. And the Student Rental Assistance Program helps American Indian and Alaska Native students who are in secondary education, so you can make time to study.

Homebuyer Opportunities

Renting isn’t always the more affordable option—KIHA can help you buy a home too. With financing through Fannie Mae, you can build or buy a new home and depending on the program, need only as little as 2.25% down payment. Discover opportunities here.

Home Improvement

Homeowners in Kodiak can qualify for a number of great home improvement services, like KIHA’s Weatherization Program to help protect from the lows of winter, or accessibility add-ons for eldery and disabled residents. Don’t just put up with problems, find out if KIHA can fix them.
