Tribal Leaders Handbook on Homeownership | Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis
As Native populations grow rapidly, tribal leaders are challenged as never before to provide their members decent housing.

The Tribal Leaders Handbook on Homeownership is the essential guide to understanding a process that has so much potential but is still in its infancy. The handbook is your guide to the new mortgage programs (government and private), the new kinds of lenders (loan funds, Native CDFIs), and the new energies that are transforming Indian housing.
