Membership Dues Membership Dues In an effort to build the Coalition’s sustainability, we developed and implemented a membership dues structure to generate income. Membership dues were launched in 2018 and generated nearly $27,000 of unrestricted income in the first year.
Practitioner Assessment Practitioner Assessment We commissioned a practitioner assessment to address challenges faced by stakeholders in the homeownership process. Results of this assessment were published in a report titled, "Expanding Homeownership on Indian Lands across South Dakota: A Practitioner Capacity-Building Needs Assessment." Moving forward, we will use this information to develop capacity building opportunities for members while considering revenue-generating strategies. Housing Needs Assessments Practitioner Assessment Through a historic partnership, the Coalition and the South Dakota Housing Development Authority worked with two tribal entities - Cheyenne River Housing Authority and Rosebud Economic Development Corporation - to complete two housing needs assessments. Each study accurately assessed household characteristics, demographics, and the unique supply and demand characteristics of the local housing markets.
Key Accomplishments How we are creating a clear path
to homeownership.
