The Nooksack Indian Housing Authority (NIHA) currently serves a significant portion of the Nooksack tribal community in providing housing services. NIHA provides housing opportunities for 179 Nooksack families to help people overcome different barriers. Of the 179 Nooksack families housed, 59 of such families have conveyed an interest in homeownership; 100 families are active participants of eventual homeownership programs and 22 are participants of the Low Rent Program. NIHA also administers a waiting list of Tribal Members in need of affordable housing, and is creating future plans and developments that would keep this list to a minimum. Additionally, NIHA helps Tribal Members connect with other State and Federal housing services, including the Section 184 Home Loan Program, Down Payment Assistance, as well as other administrative assistance.
Here is our Housing Application that you can print out, complete and return to NIHA or mail to Nooksack Indian Housing Authority, PO Box 157, Deming, WA 98244. These forms are also available at our NIHA office. For more information about the NIHA, call (360) 592-5163.
