Native Homeownership is Possible

With support from the Bush Foundation, the South Dakota Native Homeownership Coalition will be producing two videos to promote the message that “Native homeownership is possible.” These two videos are part of our communications strategy to dispel the perception that homeownership is not possible by showcasing powerful Native homebuyer success stories.
We plan to produce two videos: one short, 30-second video, and one longer video (up to 10 minutes).  It is anticipated that the longer video will showcase three to four homebuyer success stories from different tribal communities, highlighting what it took to achieve homeownership and obstacles that were overcome, as well as what it means for homeowners – the benefits of homeownership.  The shorter video will be a “trailer” for the longer piece, and focus on some of the highlights and key messages of the longer piece.

Request for Proposals

We are currently accepting proposals from interested parties to develop and produce these videos.  Interested parties may submit proposals according to the guidelines described in the Request for Proposals by March 24, 2017.
