The Mission of the Housing Division is: To endeavor to provide every enrolled member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe the opportunity of an affordable, decent, healthy, and safe home and surrounding neighborhood in order to enhance the economic stability of the Tribe and its members. The Housing Department’s main priority is providing service to Yaqui members in the traditional communities of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona including, but not limited to, Guadalupe, Old Pascua, Barrio Libre, Yoem Pueblo, Hightown, Coolidge, and the Reservation at New Pascua. The involvement of those communities and all tribal members is seen as key to the success of the Housing Department’s mission.

 

The Purpose of the Housing Division is:

A)    Create an organization with the financial capacity, facilities, structure, information base and vision to develop and deliver a variety of housing programs designed to meet the needs of the Tribe in the most efficient manner possible.

B)    Continue to expand low-income units for low income families within the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Service areas.

C)    Renovating existing homes including residencies in the entire service area when suitable and replacing homes through new construction and acquisition on those instances where is not economically feasible.

D)   Develop programs designed to increase the Housing stock.

E)     Encourage homeownership through conventional financing with or without Tribal assistance with maximum financial participation by the homebuyer. This will include educational requirements in homeownership, homeowners will take greater responsibility for maintenance of the home, finances and buying and selling the residence.

F)     Explore activities to focus specifically on prevention of drug abuse, deterrence and effective punishment.

G)   Specifically address the housing needs of our elders.

H)   Foster resident involvement, including making every effort to encourage active resident organizations in all traditional communities of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona.
