NEZ PERCE TRIBAL
The Nez Perce Tribal Housing
Authority (NPTHA) was organized pursuant to Nez Perce Tribe
Ordinance adopted in 1961.
Over the past 10 years, the NPTHA has been
implementing mortgage based housing programs. Through this effort, we have
developed comprehensive homeownership training courses, as well as, Renter’s
Rights & Responsibility courses. In 2007, we issued 49 Homebuyer Education
Certificates, 21 Renter’s Certificates and also provided our Credit Class to 90
highschool students. In addition, we have provided down payment and closing
costs assistance to three more families in 2007. This brings a total of 36 low
and moderate income families that have completed the mortgage process since the
year 2000 with assistance from our program. These numbers do not include the
over-moderate income families that have utilized the Section 184 loan program to
obtain their own mortgage.
The NPTHA Board of Commissioners (BOC) is comprised of five members elected by the NPT General Council. The key responsibilities of the BOC is to support our mission by establishing and updating policies and programs; monitoring and oversight of the NPTHA operations; providing guidance on goals and objectives to be achieved; prioritizing the services to be provided based on Tribal member needs assessments and approving the annual budget.
