27 Affordable Homes

2019 Charles L. Edison Tax Credit Excellence Award Winner in the Rural Housing Category

Southwood Estates Phase II, developed by Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation and syndicated by RBC Capital Markets, provides 27 affordable rental homes on the Prairie Band Potawatomi Reservation in Mayetta, Kansas. To address the chronic shortage of housing, particularly affordable housing designed for multigenerational households, the development consists of three- to five-bedroom single-family homes that integrate with the existing neighborhoods’ character and better meet the needs of large, multigenerational families. Over 50 percent of the homes are reserved for those recovering from alcohol or drug abuse or physical abuse, and over 20 percent are reserved for military veterans, including widows or widowers.

Travois provided consulting and architectural services for the development.
