Welcome to Cook Inlet Housing
Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) believes that quality housing provides a solid foundation on which to further build the overall quality of life. To serve this goal, we provide rental housing, home ownership and home improvement opportunities as well as neighborhood revitalization activities and community partnerships.
CIHA was created in 1974 by the Alaska Legislature to ensure that elders, individuals and families in the 45,168-square-mile area of Cook Inlet region would have access to quality, affordable housing.
With our vision of “Independence Through Housing” in mind, Cook Inlet Housing Authority develops programs intended to give our clients a “hand up,” or an opportunity to move beyond the need for assistance.

WEATHERIZATION PROGRAM INFORMATION
The Alaska State Legislature dedicated $200 million over the next five years to the Home Weatherization program implemented by Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC). AHFC issued a grant to Cook Inlet Housing to provide free weatherization services under this program to qualified individuals in order to make their homes more energy efficient and thus less costly to operate. You may call us to speak with the Weatherization Department, 793-3026 or you may download the Weatherization Application for more information.
