Tribal Housing Assistance Resource Hub

The National American Indian Housing Council (NAIHC) Tribal Housing Assistance website is a resource hub for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian homeowners, individuals, and families looking for mortgage, utilities, and rental assistance offered by state and tribal programs.

The COVID-19 pandemic created many housing challenges and in response Congress established the Homeowner Assistance Fund (HAF) and the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) to help states and tribes alleviate the impacts of COVID-19. Tribes that are recipients of HAF and ERAP funding are continuing or expanding their housing assistance services to tribal members living on and off tribal land. NAIHC offers training and technical assistance for tribal housing programs applying for HAF and ERAP funding.
