Housing assistance applications available

The Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation will soon be taking applications for students who need dorm room or college housing assistance, a media release states.

The College Housing Assistance Program applications for the spring 2014 semester are available Dec. 30 through Jan. 10.

Up to 125 full-time students working on a bachelor’s degree will receive $1,000 per semester for housing costs through the program. Students must show enrollment in an accredited institute of higher education.

“The Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation is dedicated to helping all Cherokee citizens with housing needs, especially our citizens attempting to further their education and enhance their lives,” said HACN Executive Director Gary Cooper. “This program is designed to ease the financial burden that accompanies the secondary education process and allow citizens to focus more on earning their degree.”

College Housing Assistance Program is a NAHASDA funded program designed to assist low-income Native American students. Eligible applicants must be a member of a federally recognized tribe with a home address inside the Cherokee Nation jurisdictional boundaries. Students must also meet NAHASDA income guidelines. Priority will be given to Cherokee Nation citizens.
