Member Duties : The Akwesasne Housing Authority (AHA) is the Tribally Designated Housing Entity (TDHE) for the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe. AHA’s mission is to develop a comprehensive housing program that will address the housing needs of all Mohawks living on and around our designated Indian area. The AmeriCorps VISTA member will assist AHA in several goals; the first is the collaborative planning of the “Akwesasne EcoVillage Project” neighborhood, which will include 100 culturally responsive, healthy affordable homes that will be resilient to extreme weather common to the area climate (ice and wind storms, floods). The VISTA member will conduct historical, environmental, and other applicable research useful to the planning; assist in identifying and addressing unhealthy conditions (mold, poor air quality) in existing homes in the community; and educate the community about disaster preparedness and caring for a healthy home through media outreach and educational sessions.
