Let’s welcome Tanisha Swanson to the Coalition’s team! Tanisha joined our staff as Program Coordinator in July.

In her position as Program Coordinator, Tanisha will be helping to manage the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) Social and Economic Development grant project, which is designed to transition the Coalition into an independent non-profit organization. Since coming on board, she has been providing administrative support to our Board of Directors and working committees, as well as helping with the logistics of our upcoming Annual Membership Meeting & Planning Day. Tanisha will also be responsible for coordinating the Coalition’s impact tracking and data reporting efforts.

Prior to joining the our team, Tanisha was an Occupancy Specialist at Crow Creek Housing Authority. She was a Gates Millennium Scholar and studied psychology at South Dakota State University and Sinte Gleska. Tanisha has four children and currently lives in Sisseton.

“It’s exciting to be a part of the Coalition in this stage of its development when there is so much innovation happening. I’m looking forward to contributing to the organization’s growth and increased homeownership for Native families,” says Tanisha.
