The Housing Department works to improve the quality of life of all eligible Tribal members, members of other Tribes, and other needy families by working in partnership with community-based organizations to provide housing services including the development and maintenance of decent, safe and affordable housing.

    Tribal Housing Programs:
    The Housing Department offers five housing assistance programs for low to moderate income Tribal families. All applicants must meet specific requirements to participate in these programs. The following is a brief description of the programs we offer: .

    Rental Assistance:
    This program helps Tribal Families maintain a good rental home such as an apartment, house, duplex or other rental unit by paying a portion of the rent directly to a private landlord. This program is available all over the State of Oregon and outside of Oregon for eligible full time college students. There is a waiting list for this program and all families are offered this program on a first come, first served basis.
