Founded in 1995, Travois is a Certified B Corporation®️ focused exclusively on promoting housing and economic development for American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities.

  • Expertise. Our team members are proficient in the complex programs we work in, and we will help pull some of the weight, so you can meet your community’s needs.

  • Finance. We raise capital for affordable housing and economic development through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program and the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program also through impact investors.

  • Support. Travois provides the guidance you need to ensure that your development secures financing, manages assets, progresses through each milestone, measures impacts, and meets all regulations and requirements. 

We are dedicated to helping clients successfully navigate a complex process — and create homes for families. Please watch a six-minute video below about the four steps that all LIHTC developments share and how our team members are involved at each step.
