Native Home Capital delivers technical assistance to tribes, investors and partners alike.
Early in our history tribes relayed the need for a trusted advisor and honest broker to facilitate access to private sector capital for tribal housing and non-commerical community development projects. As such, Native Home Capital helps tribes establish the programmatic infrastructure needed to access capital and other resources historically out of reach to tribes. The ultimate goal is to have tribes leverage federal funds through the use resources currently underutilized in Indian Country.
It is only in recent years that development financing tools have begun to be used at scale for tribal housing and community development projects. Therefore, we measure progress not only in the number of transactions and the volume of capital deployed but by the number of tribes and lenders that become more engaged in utilizing financing as a vehicle to meet tribal development needs.
Native Home Capital has successfully delivered the following and related technical assistance services to tribes:
- Preliminary project assessments and recommendations for project development financing
- Development of Request For Proposals and Procurement of Development and Financing Services
- Housing Needs Assessments - Many tribes would like to engage financing partners, however those partners typically require data reflecting that sufficient demand exists to absorb the type and quantity of housing proposed for development financing. A relevant housing needs assessment is a powerful tool to help structure the financing and provide investors specificity about the available sources of repayment for the proposed debt.
