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 when funds are available. All loans currently must be on fee simple land.
To obtain information on an existing loan from White Earth Investment Initiative, use the View Loan Balance function at the bottom right of this page. To request a payoff, 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.
