The Housing Program for the Little Shell Tribe is currently working on these programs to help members of the Tribe that qualify for these services.


The Little Shell Tribal Council established the Elder Housing Assistance Program (EHAP) to improve the housing conditions of Little Shell tribal elder homeowners by replacing, removing or repairing housing defects. The Tribal Council has recognized the need to ensure that our elders have energy efficient appliances that are reliable and dependable.


The EHAP Appliance Upgrade Program will provide appliance upgrades for appliances that do not meet current energy efficiency standards. Additionally, all major appliances will be evaluated for safety issues and replaced as necessary to mitigate any issues identified. Appliance upgrades will require a site visit by the Housing Department EHAP Coordinator to validate the need for upgrades and to determine replacement specifications.


Select Appliances Eligible for Upgrades:

  • Refrigerator / Freezer Combo
  • Gas Stove / Electric Range
  • Dishwasher
  • Hot Water Heater
  • Clothes Washer
  • Clothes Dryer

Eligibility Requirement:

  • Little Shell Tribal Members age 62 years or older;
    • Owns a Home in the Little Shell Tribal Service Area of Cascade, Blaine, Hill, or Glacier Counties; and
    • Meets Low Income Household – 80% of Median Income ($47,050 for single person or $67,200 for a 4 person household).

Pembina Appliance Program

The Little Shell Tribal Council established the Pembina Fund Appliance Program to provide emergency appliance assistance to Little Shell tribal elders and disabled tribal members. Approval for emergency assistance will be done on a case-by-case basis. The Program is funded by the Tribe’s allocation of the Pembina Settlement, therefore, funding is limited. 

  • The Program is available to Little Shell tribal homeowners living in Montana
  • The Program is currently only offering to repair or install a new furnace, refrigerator, and/or a stove
