Housing Assistance for Tribal Members

Housing Assistance for Tribal Members

On Friday, August 7th, 2020 the Tribe received some additional funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to support its assistance efforts for tribal members during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This housing plan outlined a number of programs and services that are designed to help tribal members in a number of different capacities. First, it included a 3-month rent relief for Tribal Members living in Tribal Housing. Second, it has allowed us to create a temporary, needs-based, rent and mortgage assistance program that is available for all Tribal Members. 

COVID-19 Housing Relief Program

The Tribe has created the COVID-19 Housing Relief Program as a way to help Grand Ronde Tribal households impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program allows for a one-time mortgage relief assistance or rental assistance grant for tribal households throughout the United States of America. The COVID-19 Housing Relief Program is based on a first come, first serve basis.

Those eligible are:

  • Tribal households negatively impacted due to COVID-19. To be considered a tribal household, the head of household, spouse, or a minor child(ren) must be an enrolled Grand Ronde Tribal member
  • Impact must be due to circumstances directly related to COVID-19 (i.e. loss of income due to lay-off, reduced hours, office closures, loss of income due to quarantine, etc.)

Households assisted with Indian Housing Block Grant funds (Rental Assistance Program) and households that benefited from the Tribal payment waiver are not eligible.

As a Tribe we are committed to helping our members, staff, and community in every way possible. We will continue to explore ways to help everyone who needs it during these challenging times.
