The Housing Program for the Little Shell Tribe is currently working on these programs to help members of the Tribe that qualify for these services.



The Little Shell Tribal Council has established the Homeowners Assistance Fund (“HAF”) to mitigate financial hardships associated with the COVID-19 pandemic by providing funds to assist Little Shell tribal members with preventing homeowner mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosures, loss of utilities or home energy services, and displacements of homeowners experiencing financial hardship after January 21, 2020, through qualified expenses related to mortgages and housing.

‘The Little Shell Tribal Housing Department is now accepting applications and will prioritize applicants based on need and funding availability. Due to the limited funding, the Housing Department is currently only accepting applications from those living in the state of Montana. The Housing Department has implemented HAF policies and procedures that provide strict parameters on eligibility to ensure the HAF Program complies with all applicable legal and federal requirements.


Types of Homeowners Assistance Available:

  • Mortgage Payment Assistance & Reinstatement
  • Utilities including electricity, gas, water and sewer, trash removal and fuel oil
  • Internet or Broadband Services
  • Other Expenses related to homeownership such as homeowners’ insurance, certain down payment assistance loans, HOA fees or liens and delinquent property taxes.


For all questions, please email or call 406.315.2400. The Housing Department is scheduling in-person consultations to provide help on the application by appointment only
