Housing Programs

USDA Rural Development sponsored and hosted a Statewide Tribal Housing Conference as the centerpiece event celebrating National Homeownership Month in June 2005. This event, while providing valuable education, information, and technical assistance also served to strengthen relationships between all levels of Rural Development and the tribes of the State of Washington. 

- Two Housing Preservation Grants were awarded to the Squaxin Island Tribe on trust land to be used to repair 32 homes on tribal lands.

- The Skokomish Indian Tribe applied for and received a Housing Preservation Grant to help 22 low-income tribal members with the most immediate need for home repairs.    The Skokomish Tribe had received an earlier HPG of $38,483 in January 2004 that was leveraged with $65,000 from Housing Urban Development under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA).  The earlier grant was the first HPG provided to a tribe in Washington State. 

- Home loan and grant packaging training to Squaxin Island Tribal employees.  Homeownership training was provided to the Squaxin Island, Quinault, Makah Tribe, Lummi Nation, and Lower Elwha S’Klallam Tribes, and Samish Indian Nation.
