AMIHA currently serves as the Tribally Designated Housing Entity (TDHE) for fourteen (14) Southern California Indian Tribes. Our consortium includes Agua Caliente, Cabazon, Cahuilla, Jamul, La Jolla, Morongo, Pauma, Pechanga, Santa Rosa, Santa Ynez, Soboba, Torres-Martinez, Twenty-Nine Palms, and Viejas. AMIHA provides differing types of services to these tribes based on their housing needs and direction from tribal leadership. AMIHA was founded in 1970 with the purpose of providing affordable, low-income housing to Tribal Members. AMIHA serves 14 reservations in 3 counties. With over 48 years of experience working with multiple Indian Tribes and construction and rehabilitation of low-income housing, AMIHA is one of only three Indian Housing Authorities in the State of California that represents multiple Tribes. To date, AMIHA has built more than 1,000 housing units in San Diego, Riverside, and Santa Barbara counties.
AMIHA’s core mission continues to be the development and management of low-income housing programs for eligible program participants. Since 2008, AMIHA has built 88 units and will construct 14 in the upcoming 2017 construction season. Additionally, AMIHA has administered contracts that involved the comprehensive rehabilitation of over 100 existing units during the same time frame. AMIHA currently has approximately 144 units in management.
AMIHA continues to administer the old Mutual Help program for approximately 68 participants and deed over 6 to 7 units per year and administers the homeowner insurance and claims processes for our participants. AMIHA also continues to manage the AMERIND homeowner’s insurance program for Mutual Help and NAHASDA homeowners.
“To provide safe, affordable, and decent housing for Indian people residing on the reservations that incorporates traditional concepts and values.
