AMERICAN INDIAN COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
The Tribal Housing Capacity Development Project (THCDP) provides free technical assistance, training and other capacity development assistance to federally recognized Indian tribes to enable them to better plan and implement housing projects and programs – individually and jointly.
THCDP is funded through a USDA Rural Community Development Initiative (RCDI). Additional generous financial and/or staff support is provided through our banking partners and our membership of non-profit affordable housing developers.
Through THCDP, CCRH, and in partnership with our partners Northern Circle Indian Housing Authority (NCIHA), Rural Community Assistance Corporation, Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations has assisted tribes secure new grants, plan and implement new housing projects, form partnerships and develop staff and council skills and knowledge.
Our general activities include, but are not limited to:
Facilitating Collaboration: Matching Tribes with Non-Profit Affordable Housing Developers
Increasing Home Ownership: Working with Tribal communities to expand utilization of the HUD 184 Tribal Home loan guarantee program.
Assisting Tribes in Leveraging their Indian Housing Development Block Grants: General application assistance to access state funding resources.
