Our Mission

The mission of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Housing Authority is to develop affordable homes and housing opportunities for all Native American families on the Leech Lake Reservation, to provide efficient/sensitive services that lead to self-sufficient tenant/home owners and healthy safe communities.


The Leech Lake Housing Authority was formed by the Leech Lake Reservation Business Committee on September 1, 1963 (Ordinance 63-01) and has been in existence for over 50 years. The formation of a Housing Authority and an independent Board of Commissioners, consisting of six Band Members is a requirement to enter into funding contracts through the U.S. Department of Urban Development.

Our first development projects were built in 1964-1966, which consisted of 105 rental and Mutual Help home ownership units. Since the first years of development to the present the Housing Authority has built and/or purchased nearly 600 homes within the reservation boundaries.
