The Navajo Housing Authority maintains a strong financial position and is recognized nationally for its organizational capabilities and model activities. However, the estimated $8B worth of housing and infrastructure needed as well as additional capitalization costs for new enterprises requires strong and lasting partnerships for development financing.
The Navajo Housing Authority will hold a Funders’ Forum on November 14 and 15, 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The day and a half event will provide an overview of its integrated infrastructure and housing development priorities as well showcase expansion plans for existing enterprises. The land base of the Navajo Nation is vast and business opportunities associated for banking and financial institutions as well as other partners are significant.
The Navajo Housing Authority (NHA) is the largest Tribally Designated Housing Authority in the United States. NHA receives over $90MM in annual federal appropriations as part of a solemn and historic pledge the United States government maintains with American Indian tribes. The Navajo Nation is the largest American Indian tribe in the United States and covers 27,000 square miles of unparalleled beauty in the greater southwest. Diné Bikéyah, or Navajoland, is larger than 10 of the 50 states in America.
