Access Apartments – 11 units
238 Sierra Manor Road, Mammoth Lakes
Project in progress
Mammoth Lakes Housing acquired this commercial property in 2017, and is ready to convert two buildings into much-needed affordable housing for residents of Mammoth Lakes. We’re asking for community support to help get this project over the finish line!
The Finish Line – Donate Today!
We have completed all pre-development work including bid-ready plans and specifications, building permits, NEPA compliance, market studies, relocation plans, and lead/asbestos surveys, as well as secured $5 million towards putting the shovel in the ground.
We are almost there!
This is where you come in! We are asking our community to help us in the final stretch to achieve our shared goal of affordable local housing. We need to raise $100,000 from the community to ensure the Access Apartments project is completed.

238 Sierra Manor Road, Mammoth Lakes (Google map) – An incredible central, walkable location close to a variety of amenities including free public transit, shopping, schools, medical facilities, library, grocery stores, community services, and more.
Access Apartments has been funded through MLH capital, grants, loans, a partial land donation, and local funds. However, due to the lag time between state financing application submission and funding (12+ months), coupled with the impacts to the building industry from the COVID-19 pandemic, the total project cost has increased.
Update July 30, 2021: Mammoth Lakes’ Town Council Allocates $1.5 million to Access Apartments. Mammoth Lakes Housing, Inc. (MLH) is excited to announce that it is $1.2 million closer to starting construction on eleven one-bedroom apartments. Read the press release here.
