ANNUAL INDIAN HOUSING PLAN (IHP)

There are several services that the Housing Department provides to our tenants and they vary according to the Housing Departments budget, your lease agreements, age, and income.  Some of the services provided include:

  • Housing ( we currently have a waiting list)
  • Elderly  & Disabled Accessibility Assistance
  • Elder Home Protection Assistance
  • Maintenance requests
  • Payment or Payback Agreements

Currently we are working on renovating vacant homes.  There are homes in the Colony which are experiencing foundation failures and that issue must be resolved before any rehabilitation is completed on the vacant units at the Colony.  There are also a handful of homes on the reservation that will be renovated in the future and eventually become rentable.
