Financing help for housing projects in Indian Country

Does your tribe maintain a long waiting list of members interested in affordable housing? Are you planning to rehabilitate or build an affordable housing development? Do you need help finding financing? We want to help!

Now is the best time of year to start thinking about your affordable housing plans for 2015 and beyond. The Low Income Housing Tax Credit program is a great way to fund up to 90 percent of your affordable housing development and the planning starts now. Tell us about your plans, and we’ll reserve a spot for your development in our 2015 project pipeline.

If you have a project idea, email me at or call me at or 816-994-8970 to discuss the possibilities.

Many states will be holding hearings soon to learn more about the affordable housing needs of its citizens, and Travois can help make sure your voice is heard. States will also be soliciting comments on their Qualified Allocation Plans (QAP). This is your opportunity to encourage changes so tribal developments can compete more effectively for tax credits.

If you’re not ready to get started just yet, now is still a good time to chat with our staff about things to keep in mind as you’re planning a project — infrastructure needs, financing considerations, market analysis, and more.

Join the more than 70 tribes or TDHEs that have worked with Travois to finance their affordable housing and economic development. Our staff is ready to help no matter what stage of the process you are in.
