IDENTIFICATION OF THE PROPERTY FOR RENT Located on a 52 acre VA owned property located at 6505 South Manthey Road, French Camp, CA. A new outpatient clinic and community living center are under construction on 35 acres of this property. VA proposes to lease approximately two acres located on the northwest portion of the property.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED USE OF THE PROPERTY The proposed use for the VA property will be to construct a new building on approximately two acres of land to provide supportive housing for veterans and their families on a priority placement basis.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED LEASE Using VA’s enhanced use lease authority under 38 USC §§ 8161-8169, VA plans to lease the site to a select tenant for a term of up to 99 years. Tenant will be required to finance, design, develop, construct, equip, furnish, operate, and maintain supportive housing for veterans at no cost to VA, and in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local requirements. In pursuit of one of the Secretary’s priorities and in keeping with the VA’s mission, the EUL will use approximately two acres of undeveloped land to provide supportive housing units to veterans and their families who are homeless. or at risk of homelessness. This proposed UE will not result in additional capital or operating costs for VANCHCS, resulting in cost-effective use of VA capital assets. The EUL would result in a demonstrable improvement in services to eligible veterans in the San Joaquin Valley region by housing veterans and their families close to onsite support services, case management, medical care resources, and the job support. At the end of the EUL term, the underlying leasehold interest and all related improvements will revert to VA.
