Recent Update To Housing Contact Information

Due to budget cuts, the Bois Forte Tribal Government has directed departments to discontinue cell phone service for those employees who do not need them for health and safety. For Housing, the Maintenance Technicians retain theirs, while the office staff no longer have theirs.

Information Regarding Homeownership Potential

The Bois Forte Housing Department is hosting two community meetings to present information on the potential for homeownership in the Tax Credit 1 and 2 programs. The Tax Credit 1 program is at the end of the initial 15 year compliance period. We are working with Minnesota Housing (the regulator) on conveying ownership to qualified residents. Tax Credit 2 will be at the end of their compliance period in the next couple years, making this a great opportunity for TC2 to get a jump start on their preparations for this process. TC1 & 2 resident attendance is expected and required at one of the community meetings being held. Everyone is welcome.

Housing sent a mailing with more information to residents. Please call Dani at (218) 757-3253 x 232 to register. Nett Lake Nov 28th and Vermilion Nov 29th, see the flyer for more details.
