Akwesasne Housing Authority

Akwesasne Housing Authority

Mission: To develop a comprehensive housing program that will address the needs of all Mohawks living on and around our designated Indian area by promoting strength and prosperity through safe and affordable housing.

The AHA operates several programs for the benefit of low-income tribal members and their families through a block grant program provided by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development. AHA programs and services are administered through legislation known as NAHASDA (Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act), and are governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners consisting of tribal members. AHA provides guidance on homeownership options and rental opportunities as well as assistance with counseling and training relevant to housing programs benefiting eligible families. The AHA is highly involved in community events and is partnering with other tribal agencies to plan and coordinate community facilities and infrastructure projects. The AHA is also a sponsoring agency of the Akwesasne Boys & Girls Club, Akwesasne Charter.

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, Akwesasne Mohawk Casino and Mohawk Bingo Palace provide support for a fund that provides financial assistance to non-profit organizations and individuals. Priority is given to projects, programs and families in need that promote physical, mental, spiritual and cultural growth.
