Prairie Band receives $500,000 AHP grant

Congratulations to the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation! The tribe recently received an Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grant of $500,000 through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka.

AHP grants continue to be very sought-after and extremely competitive. These funds will add an extra boost to the tribe’s third Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) project — which received an allocation of tax credits from Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) in May!

The project will begin construction next year and once complete, will provide the Mayetta, KS, community with 27 new single-family homes, a playground, picnic area, barbeque pits and a covered pavilion. The project site is also located near a basketball court, biking and walking path and an exercise facility that will be available to the new residents.

Travois Design & Construction Services is the architect for the project and has worked with the housing staff and community to create these beautiful designs.

The new units will have three, four or five bedrooms. Each home will include a single-car covered carport (and a private driveway capable of accommodating one additional vehicle) and a covered front porch. Inside, families will enjoy features like a propane range, hard surface flooring, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and central air conditioning.

Congrats to PBPN!

  1. Hi, Julia – If you are an enrolled member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, we suggest you get in touch with the housing department. The housing staff can help answer questions about options for home renovations. You can find information on this page: http://www.pbpindiantribe.com/national-programs.aspx

    The grant that we shared news about in this blog post is to help build 27 new homes and cannot be used for home renovations.

    Good luck!
