Mixed income housing provides TDHEs and Tribal Housing Departments the opportunity to reach people with various housing needs at a variety of income levels. This training is designed to provide Indian Housing Professionals with a thorough overview of the process for determining the planning, financing, development and marketing necessary to ensure a successful mixed income residential project. Over the two-day course, participants will learn how to analyze need, interpret market data, engage stakeholders, address staff capacity, and evaluate different financing options available for their mixed income projects. The training will also include an opportunity to learn about financing options targeted to tribal housing organizations as well as successes and pitfalls from other tribal housing groups utilizing mixed income development.
