Housing

Housing Services & Programs

Adequate shelter is essential for tribal peoples to express their independence, cultural values, and self-determination. In addition, the more people are able to own homes here, the more money is spent on local businesses and goods, and that means a stronger year-round economy for all of us. We have several programs to make it easier to obtain and maintain homes in our community.
