JOIN THE FOOD SOVEREIGNTY & ELDER'S TEA TUESDAYS
As of 7am on the morning of Monday, May 23rd, the Bishop Paiute Tribe's own Radio Station is officially on the air!
Tune in to KBPT 96.1 FM.
The Bishop Paiute Tribe will host a representative from the Department of Housing and Urban Development�s Office of Native American Programs (HUD ONAP), Andrea Dunyon, Section 184 Loan Specialist, at the next Community Meeting on June 25, 2016 at the Community Center.
The HUD Section 184 Loan Program was designed to be used on Trust Land by guaranteeing 100% of the loan amount to lenders in case of foreclosure, which lowers the risk to the lenders and provides a low down payment and low interest rates for qualified households. The loan can be used to purchase an existing home, build a new home, including manufactured home on permanent foundations, repair/rehabilitate a home, and re-finance a home loan. She will be making a short presentation and later answering questions.
In anticipation of the Bureau of Indian Affairs Realty Department completion of the Title Status Report (TSR), the Tribe is reviewing it policies and procedures to ensure it meets the legal requirements and responsibilities to process the Lease Agreements between the Tribe, BIA, private lenders, and individual households. Before the Saturday Community meeting Ms. Dunyon will be meeting the Tribal Council, and later with the Tribal Department Staff.
If you have any questions please contact Charles England, Director of the Community Development Department, (760) 872-4356.
