Napa County Housing Authority
The Napa County Housing Authority (NCHA) is focused primarily on addressing the need for safe and affordable housing for farm workers, particularly those in the migrant/seasonal category who, in turn, support the agricultural industry of Napa County. The three farm worker centers provide housing for an underserved, but critical, segment of our society. The New York Times profiled the program recently in a feature story.
In February 2013, a draft report was released detailing farmworker housing needs in Napa County. A focal point of the study is a survey of 350 local farmworkers to determine their housing needs.
Currently, there are three publically owned and operated farm worker housing centers in Napa County. Each center houses 60 workers and is open from 9 to 11 months per year. For information on housing availability at the centers, please call (707) 963-7496.
The 15th Annual Cinco de Mayo Golf Tournament - May 3, 2013
The annual golf tournament to benefit Napa Valley farm workers will take place on Friday May 3, 2013, at the Silverado County Club. A "South-of-the-Border" luncheon will follow the tournament. Cost is $185 per person. All proceeds will go towards meeting the needs and welfare of local farm workers.
