About Us

CHIP is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation serving Butte, Glenn, Tehama, Plumas, Shasta, Sutter and Yuba counties. "Helping People Help Themselves” is CHIP’s mission. We assist low-income and rural disadvantaged residents, seniors and others who lack financial resources or knowledge to improve or provide adequately for their housing. Here’s what we do:

  • Construct mutual self-help (sweat equity) housing and affordable multi-family apartment housing
  • Manage rental properties we build and properties owned by others (16 properties total)
  • Provide education and services to residents
  • Build and enhance communities

Our organization has built more than 2000 housing units in our seven-county service area and is acknowledged as an innovator and leader in rural housing issues.
