Kasaan Receives Community Partner of the Year Award


From THRHA

(Updated) The Tlingit-Haida Regional Housing Authority (THRHA) recently hosted the First Annual Southeast Housing Summit in Juneau. This inaugural two-day event which closed on Thursday, March 14th brought together participants from throughout Southeast Alaska to explore this Summit’s theme of “Planning Our Future Through Housing.” Participants represented a variety of housing-related industries including real estate, contractors, local government, mortgage and finance, tribal management, and various Alaska Native Corporations.

At the Summit, the Organized Village of Kasaan received THRHA’s 2019 Community Partner of the Year Award. “Kasaan’s population has grown by 63% since 2010, largely in part to the work that the Tribe has done to spark economic development,” said Joyce Niven, THRHA’s Interim President & CEO. “As a Tribal Partner, Kasaan has been a model partner.”

The award was given in recognition of Kasaan’s forward thinking planning, innovation, and creativity that they have exhibited in support of community housing. “Kasaan has been able to leverage their NAHASDA (Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act) funding with other creative funding opportunities for the advancement of their Tribal members,” said Joyce.

Congratulations to Kasaan for this outstanding achievement!
