Commission Approves Tiny Home Village Agreements

06/25/2019

County Commissioners approved the lease and operating agreements with the Albuquerque Indian Center for the Tiny Home Village. The agreement approvals bring the transitional housing project one-step closer to fruition, the first of its kind in Bernalillo County.

“People experiencing homelessness is a growing problem in Bernalillo County and the Tiny Home Village will provide a safe and secure housing opportunity for those individuals in need,” says Commission Vice Chair Debbie O’Malley. “This project will also help to stabilize and positively impact the neighborhood in which it resides. I would like to thank the surrounding residents and churches, and the advocates and elected representatives who whole-heartedly supported this project and helped to make it possible.”

The lease with the Albuquerque Indian Center is for a total of $ 811,361 for a period of 30 years effective Oct. 1, 2019, with an option for extension for an additional 30 years.

The operating agreement is for five years for a total of $1.1 million. The operating agreement will allow for the day-to-day operations of the Tiny Home Village. The Albuquerque Indian Center has a 19-year history of providing services to those experiencing poverty and homelessness including meals, counseling, drug and alcohol rehab, and job readiness.

The Tiny Home Village pilot project will help to fill the gaps of transitional housing that is currently lacking in the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.

Both agreements were approved by a 4 to 0 vote. Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada was excused from the meeting.
