TAHLEQUAH – The Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation will accept College Housing Assistance Program applications for the fall 2020 semester now through Aug. 7. 

The CHAP is a Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act-funded program designed to help low-income Native American students secure safe and affordable housing while seeking a first-time bachelor’s degree. Program participants must also maintain full-time student status at an accredited institute of higher education. 

The program will provide up to 125 qualifying students with up to $1,000 per semester for housing costs. 

Eligible applicants must be citizens of federally recognized tribes and residents of the CN jurisdiction. Applicants must also meet NAHASDA income guidelines as well as other eligibility requirements according to the CHAP policy. Priority will be given to CN citizens and students who were served on the program the previous semester. 

Applications are available at www.hacn.org or any HACN office location. For information, call 918-456-5482.
