The College Housing Assistance Program is a Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA) funded program designed to assist low-income Native American students to secure safe and affordable housing while seeking a first-time bachelor’s degree and maintaining full-time student status at an accredited institute of higher education.

Eligible applicants must be a member of a federally recognized tribe and be a resident of the Cherokee Nation jurisdictional area. Applicants must also meet NAHASDA income guidelines as well as other eligibility requirements according to the College Housing Assistance Program policy.
