Advance your career
Residents who are 22 or older and have lived in Alta Housing communities for a year or longer can apply for a scholarship to help advance their careers. Scholarships can be used towards certificate programs, community college or a four year degree. It is our hope that Alta Housing residents will use these funds to achieve career advancement and with that, the ability to pursue other housing choices.
The Opportunity Fund was created in honor of Alta Housing Board Member, Jean Dawes who has been an advocate for affordable housing and the pursuit of higher education for over 40 years. After serving on the Alta Housing Board for over 30 years, Jean stepped down in May 2019 to chair the Alta Housing Advisory Committee.
