Tribal Member Benefits Department Mission 

To provide Tribal families with housing assistance opportunities while promoting a healthy living environment, creating a sense of community and building economic self-sufficiency.

About the Tribal Member Benefits Department

The Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indian Tribal Member Benefits Department’s goal is to carry out the Department’s mission statement by offering Supportive Housing Programs and Financial Counseling/Coaching to Tribal Citizens of all income levels. This includes the rental of Tribally-owned dwelling units, Down Payment Assistance, Housing Improvement, IDA, Principal Pay Down and a Water & Sewer/Sanitation Improvement Program. These programs are coupled with Housing and Financial Wellness, for groups and individually, whichever best suit the Citizen's needs.

The Tribal Member Benefits Department is governed by the Gun Lake Tribal Council along with a three-person Housing Committee comprised of Tribal Citizens.

Housing Assistance Handbook 

 Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians’ Housing Assistance “Handbook” governs the housing activities of the Tribal Member Benefits Department. The Handbook contains a listing of each of the programs offered by the Department along with each program’s objective, benefit(s) offered and eligibility criteria. Handbooks are available in paper version or on a flash drive, upon request. Tribal Citizens can download the Housing Assistance Handbook by logging into the member portal and visiting the "Forms & Documents" page.
