SIOUX VALLEY HOUSING (ON RESERVE)
Currently, Sioux Valley Dakota Nation has a total of 368 houses on reserve, consisting of 198 Band units and 170 CMHC units. With recent upgrades to the Water Treatment Facility, we can now safely provide water services to the 189 units on the waterline, deliver water to the 106 units with holding tanks, and provide delivery to the 73 units which operate from wells.
Our latest CMHC housing projects were completed in the spring of 2012 with the addition of 6 trailers, and most recently this past fall 2014 with the addition of 4 new houses.
Earlier this year we moved in 4 new 3-bedroom and 2 new 2-bedroom trailers to SVDN. We are in the process of applying for more housing units in the upcoming 2015/2016 fiscal year.
Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program (RRAP) is a proposal driven program that provides a percentage of funds to complete repairs on band units. The band has to be able to cover a percentage of the cost in order to qualify. This year we have completed 2 RRAP units. We have been approved for 6 more this upcoming year and are applying for more the following year.
Sioux Valley Housing is pleased to inform you that we are currently working in Partnership with Manitoba Hydro First Nation Power Smart Program; Insulation Upgrades and Direct Install program. Stop in for information, the office is located in the housing shed.
