By Beth Milligan | Sept. 20, 2019
The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians held a grand opening this week of its new tribally funded housing development in Traverse City.
The project, located on Herkner Road, includes four apartment buildings containing one and two-bedroom units. The development will offer market-based rentals for tribal members and their families who reside primarily in the Traverse City area. Applicants for occupancy will be accepted based upon specific tribal guidelines.
The Grand Traverse Band "is extremely happy to be offering these additional services to Traverse City area tribal residents, and GTB looks forward to developing further housing opportunities for its tribal members," the group said in a statement.
