We are here to help

Northern Circle has a number of grant funded programs to help members of our consortium tribes. These programs include rental assistance, move-in deposit assistance, home rehab for owners, and residency in one of Northern Circle’s managed homes. Additionally we are currently offering Emergency Rental Assistance and Home Owner Assistance for members affected by Covid-19.

We also offer wrap-around services to help our members toward self sufficiency. These services include the Homeless & Disability Advocacy Program (HDAP) and the Resident Opportunity Supportive Services (ROSS). We have plans to offer additional services in the future.
