Latest News from the National Native Homeownereship Coalition
Spring 2019
Greetings from the CICD!

We closed out 2018 and ushered in 2019 with a broad conversation with our partners across Indian Country about the Tribal Leaders Handbook on Homeownership. Our work in 2019 extends this engagement by adding more web resources and creating a curriculum for the Handbook for practitioners.

We also recognize some of our amazing leaders as they pursue new endeavors!
