Applications for assistance

Rising up from COVID - 19

We are here to help


With the introductions of the COVID 19 pandemic, we all felt the panic and fear as businesses began to lay of employees and unemployment became unresponsive. NCIHA received government funding, Cares Act, in 2020 to help tribal communities affected by COVID 19. In 2021, the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) began funded by the US Department of Treasury that is assisting renters to make up past due payments and bills. As of November 2021, NCIHA has opened applications for the Homeowners Assistance Fund (HAF) to assist homeowners affected by COVID-19. We received confirmation that NCIHA will receive additional funds in the American Rescue Act, this will help both renters and homeowners affected by the pandemic, though a date has not yet be decided for when for when applications will be accepted. Check in regularly on our website and Facebook page for updates of COVID assistance.
