The BRHA is designated as a Tribal Designated Housing Entity (TDHE). It currently manages 171 low income housing units which are each located on the Bad River Reservation. Our purpose is to provide safe sanitary housing for those persons meeting the individual income and family composition requirements.
The BRHA has completed two major construction projects. The $2 million ARRA “Green Project” which rehabbed 18 homes in the Birch Hill Community. Phase I of this project was completed during the first week of November 2010. Phase II was completed in 2011, while Phase III was completed the project in 2012.
The second project was a $5 million dollar Tax Credit program that rehabbed 24 homes in the Birch Hill and New Odanah area, and renovated the Birch Hill Community Center to include installing all new playground equipment. Phase I of this project was delayed due to the National banking crisis in the summer of 2010. However, Phase I was completed by February of 2011. Phase II was completed around May of 2011, and Phase III was completed around December of 2011. When both projects are completed, 25% of all housing stock will be rehabilitated with insulation, energy star appliances and energy rated windows.
BRHA was awarded a second Tax Credit program for 2014. Preliminary planning is now taking place to rehab 24 homes.
