Carson City, Nevada: Housing, Services, and Job Training for the Formerly Homeless at Richards Crossing

HUD User publishes a series of case studies based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities and support community development. The projects and community development efforts featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

Developed by the Nevada Rural Housing Authority, Richards Crossing provides 38 units of permanent affordable housing for low-income veterans, the formerly homeless, and persons with disabilities in the state capital of Carson City. The affordable housing development, the first project of its type in the state, includes supportive services and a job training facility to empower residents to gain employment and attain self-sufficiency. Richards Crossing opened in April 2017 and won a National Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies Award in the HOME Excellence category the same year.
