Housing for Farmworkers

La Brisa Marina is located in the farming community of Oceano, within walking distance to schools, shopping and employment. Completed in 2001, this development began with the demolition of nearly a block of severely dilapidated buildings and ended with the creation of 16 permanently affordable apartments for farmworkers. Two, three, and four bedroom units are included.

Occupancy in Las Brisas Marinas is restricted to households earning at least 50% of their income from farm labor. Amenities include a community building, laundry facilities, enclosed security gates, play equipment and a basketball court. On site services such as after school programs, literacy courses, and health screenings are provided. Financing was provided through a unique blend of sources, including State Farmworker Tax Credits purchased by the California Equity Fund and local funds from the County of San Luis Obispo.
