Tribal Resilience VISTA: Opportunity Link - Blackfeet
Enterprise is a national nonprofit dedicated to creating opportunity for low-and moderate-income people through affordable housing in diverse, thriving communities. Enterprise’s Rural and Native American Initiative (RNAI) works with tribal and community partners to create healthy, safe, green affordable housing and to increase opportunities for economic advancement for individuals and families. The RNAI is implementing a Cultural and Climate Resiliency AmeriCorps*VISTA Program to build the capacity of tribal partners to mitigate climate impacts on housing in a culturally responsive manner. One AmeriCorps*VISTA will be placed with Opportunity Link to serve the Blackfeet Reservation. Located in Havre, MT Opportunity Link is a regional non-profit agency serving 11 counties and three reservations (Blackfeet, Fort Belknap, and Rocky Boy) in Northcentral Montana. The AmeriCorps*VISTA will work with the tribal housing authority and other tribal departments to implement the rehabilitation pilot project and to provide the tribal housing authority with the tools and procedures that will allow them to independently continue with a rehabilitation program once the pilot program is completed. The AmeriCorps*VISTA will have the opportunity to attend the Disaster Resilience Academy in Washington D.C. to learn about federal tools and resources, such as those available through the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit, to assess risk and counter the effects of extreme weather events and other climate-related impacts on communities and vulnerable populations, including low-income residents.
