Hopi Tribal Housing Authority
For more than 49 years, Hopi Tribal Housing Authority (HTHA) has served through hard work in improving the local communities. Raising hammers and hope, the HTHA teamed with many contractors, to deliver safe and affordable housing to local families.
Our mission is providing the Hopi Community opportunities for safe, decent, sanitary, and quality housing; to enable improvement of the physical conditions of housing; to continually upgrade the management and operations of the Tribally Designated Housing Entity, while developing and enhancing a stronger, healthier and viable economic initiative related to low-income housing assistance; to include other housing opportunities available under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996.
In order to achieve, the employees have been able to provide insightful solutions that drive value and success for our clients by starting new programs, such as the rehabilitation of private homes, some traditional Hopi homes over 100 years old, preserving culture, assisting families with mortgage buy-downs, assisting college students and veterans with housing rental assistance.
From our humble beginnings as of last fall, the HTHA has added capable, committed staff to serve as core pillars and partners with many vendors and contractors to play a vital role in connecting to our client needs. In recent months, more clients entrusted us to help them more effectively in addressing their needs in the housing areas. With this trust comes great responsibility – a responsibility we take very seriously. The HTHA also recognizes its responsibility to give back to and generate a lasting, positive impact upon the communities in which we work and live, thus, the First Mesa Youth Center is now open, serving all the villages. This commitment to giving back can be witnessed at every level of our organization and in every department in which we operate.
I am proud to share that today our FY’ 2016 Indian Housing Plan conversed throughout the Hopi communities includes new homes consisting of 39 Scattered-site homeownership homes, 40 rental units in Winslow and 20 rental units in Spider Mound, many other developments; depleting the amount of funds that was in the pipeline. This is even more gratifying because much of this activity is locally, progressively and partner driven. Above all, we’re excited about the future and are committed to making positive contributionsfor – today and tomorrow – that will benefit the community in which we live and future generations alike.
If you have ideas or suggestions regarding the HTHA’s community responsibility efforts, I would love to hear them so we continue to challenge ourselves to work together to build a better future. We look forward to doing more, and we wish to update you on our progress in your community.
