The National American Indian Housing Council (NAIHC) was founded in 1974 as a 501(c)(3) corporation. NAIHC is the only national organization representing housing interests of Native people who reside in Indian communities, Alaska Native Villages, and on native Hawaiian Home Lands. The NAIHC is composed of 271 members representing 463 tribes and housing organizations. NAIHC also has associate and individual members and organizations that support our mission. NAIHC is guided by a 10-member Board of Directors representing Native housing entities in nine geographical regions throughout the United States. NAIHC promotes and supports Native housing entities in their efforts to provide culturally relevant and quality affordable housing on behalf of Native people.
NAIHC services to its members and the general public include
- Advocacy for housing opportunities and increased funding for Native American housing and community development programs;
- Training in many areas of Native housing management;
- On-site technical assistance for Native housing professionals; and
- Research and information services related to Native housing issues and programs.
