In the news: High Country News covers housing in Indian Country

High Country News, a nonprofit media organization that publishes a print and online magazine on the American West, has recently broadened its coverage of tribal affairs. We were contacted by Mark Fogarty, who previously reported for Indian Country Today Media Network, about housing development in Indian Country.

Travois CEO Elizabeth Glynn spoke with Mark about the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), Travois, our growth, tribal sovereignty, our clients’ successes, job creation and more.

To tell more of the story, we introduced Mark to Sarah A. (pictured below), a member of the Karuk Tribe, who shared her experiences after recently moving her family into a four-bedroom home in a new development on tribal land. NAIHC Executive Director Tony Walters was also quoted.

As the article explains, Sarah’s home is part of the Karuk Tribal Housing Authority’s development of 30 new single-family homes on tribal land in Yreka, California, which were financed with the LIHTC program. Visit our development map to see photos and read more of the backstory.
