Providing resources and support for the development of affordable housing solutions designed to fit the unique needs of Michigan's twelve federally recognized tribal nations.

The Tribal Nations Housing Development Assistance Program (TNHDAP) builds upon the existing capacity of Michigan’s twelve federally recognized tribal nations by providing the resources and support necessary to develop affordable housing programs that respond to the unique needs of these communities. The program is launched in partnership with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA).

FHLBank Indianapolis is supporting this program with a grant of up to $3 million, which marks the Bank’s largest ever award to a single organization. The grant provides flexible funding to help remove barriers to program participation and will cover critical pre-development expenses, respond to additional capacity building needs and opportunities, and help bridge project financing gaps. The TNHDAP will assist tribal nations with new housing development while also supporting needed upgrades to existing homes.

Check out our video introduction to this exciting new program below. For additional program information, please visit the Tribal Nations Housing Development Assistance Program page on MSHDA’s website.
