Housing Authority

The Kaw Housing Authority was established October 17th, 1977, to serve low income Native Americans with affordable and adequate housing.
We’ve helped numerous Native American families purchase their homes in the areas of Newkirk, Kaw City, Ponca City, Blackwell and Braman, Oklahoma.

We currently offer a Homeownership Program. Homeowners will be able to purchase homes in our jurisdictional area at 0% interest based upon their family’s total gross income. Kaw tribal members do have preference.

Down Payment Assistance – is available to Kaw tribal members only, for a onetime payment of $2,000 that will be applied to the closing cost.
