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:
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.
Our housing development at Qaxas Heights in North Bend offers two, three and four bedroom single family houses, two bedroom duplexes and one and two bedroom 4-Plex units. At our Qa’aich Development located in Florence, Oregon we have two 4-Plexes that contain one and two bedroom units. These Florence units are for Tribal members who are employed by a tribal entity.
This program grants eligible Tribal members up to $10,000 towards purchasing their first home. Participants do not have to repay the loan if they live in their home for at least seven years. If they move out of their home prior to the seven year minimum, they must repay a prorated amount of the loan.
This program is intended to help Tribal families repair their owner occupied home and is one of the few programs that is available anywhere in the United States. This program can include, but is not limited to, repairing or replacing roofs, heating systems, electrical or plumbing upgrades. Each qualified homeowner can receive up to $10,000 to help make their home a decent, safe and healthy place to live.
This program is for families who are homeless through no fault of their own. The assistance may include, but is not limited to: placement in community-based crisis centers, transitional housing, motels, or the payment of one month’s rent or deposit for a new rental unit.
