The 19 affordable homes are the first of 95 that are slated to be developed by WCH in southeast Bend between Daly Estates Drive and Pettigrew Road, with the first phase at 61635 Daly Estates Drive.

WCH said in a news release it plans to begin the infrastructure work later this year and will begin the building in mid-2023. Homes will be available in 2024 to pre-approved buyers making less than 80% of the area median income.

WCH said it was formed to address the need for additional owner-occupied workforce housing in the Bend area.

"The partnership is excited to be able to create the opportunity for both stable housing and equity building to qualified buyers," they said.
