Tiny homes are coming to Six Nations to help address the housing crisis on the reserve.
On Jan. 8, Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) and Six Nations Housing signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together to help address the housing crisis on the territory by collaborating on SNGRDC’s Tiny Homes project.
Under the MOU, Six Nations band members who are accessing the Six Nations Housing loan programs will be able to coordinate the purchase of a SNGRDC tiny home through prescribed payment terms agreed upon by Six Nations Housing and SNGRDC, according to a press release from the SNGRDC.
For Six Nations members who are accessing the Six Nations Housing loan programs and are ready to purchase a tiny home, a pre-approved loan letter from Six Nations Housing can be used to initiate the purchase from SNGRDC, the press release noted.
Tiny Homes are also available for private purchase for Six Nations members. A 50 per cent deposit is required upon finalization of the sale agreement.
SNGRDC’s Tiny Homes team is currently taking orders for builds in 2024.
Community members who have provided their contact information through its interest list have been contacted.
The press release noted that all other Six Nations members who are interested and ready to purchase a home can now reach out to the Tiny Homes team.
Tiny Home buyers are solely responsible for site preparation, including but not limited to: site clearing, foundation, sewer, water, and hydro.
Anyone who is interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (519)-756-5608 ext. 9003.
