White Earth Investment Initiative personalizes the home purchase process by meeting with potential home-buyers and working with them from pre-qualifying to loan closing. We connect borrowers with products offered by the home-ownership experts at Midwest Minnesota Community Development Corporation*, which specializes in affordable home purchase, down-payment and closing-cost-assistance loan products. WEII also can provide smaller first-time home-buyer loans itself when funds are available.
Qualifying homes may be on fee simple or trust property.
To request a loan payoff amount, please send a request by email to Audra Tonihka, or by mail to Loan Servicer, White Earth Investment Initiative, P.O. Box 38, Ogema, MN 56569-0038. This address also should be used for sending payments by mail.
Minnesota Chippewa Tribe Finance Corporation also provides loans to tribal members for the purchase of homes.
*Midwest Minnesota Community Development Corporation is a WEII affiliate.
All loans are subject to credit approval.
