of the Arctic Slope region. Currently, TNHA serves low income residents through the
development, administration, and management of safe, clean, affordable and sustainable
housing. Cumulatively, TNHA has developed 620 Indian housing units, including 409
single-family homes. TNHA also manages 120 single and multifamily market-based rental
housing units located in villages throughout the North Slope Borough.
