Indian Housing

MILS provides civil representation to members of federally acknowledged/recognized tribes in tribal court if court appointed counsel is not available to the client. After taking into account program resources MILS staff will provide assistance in the following matters; juvenile delinquency, banishment, civil infractions (fishing violations, etc), evictions, garnishment, abuse and neglect and related child welfare matters.

The Michigan Tribal Landlord Tenant Manual

The manual provides an overview of federal housing laws, including the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA), and the housing laws and policies of each of the 12 federally acknowledged tribes in Michigan. In addition, MILS has created brochures aimed at tribal housing tenants and court forms that tenants can use in tribal court eviction proceedings.
