Mark your calendar for this dynamic conference to learn, grow, and collaborate while inspiring new ideas, partnerships, and investment opportunities to grow Tribal ecosystems that support housing, homeownership, and economic development.

Hosted by Enterprise Community Partners in partnership with Freddie Mac, the summit will be led by voices from across the Tribal Community to create a pathway to build more homes and stronger economies based upon the four tenets of the Tribal Housing Ecosystem.

  • Demand for housing in tune with workforce and economic development priorities
  • Social and emotional infrastructure to build strong individuals, families, tenants, and homeowners
  • Construction and development capacity and local expertise to meet the demand for new and preserved housing stock
  • Finance options for housing development and homeownership on fee simple and Tribal trust lands

Working together, we can build the healthy housing ecosystems that foster:

Stronger Families | Stronger Communities | Stronger Industries | Stronger Economies

We are very excited to bring together Tribal Nations’ best knowledge and experience on August 27-29 at the Boise Centre.
