Our Purpose

The purpose of the Pinoleville Pomo Nation Indian Housing Authority is to provide affordable, safe, clean and adequate housing to lower-income tribal citizens and to increase housing opportunities within our communities that embrace traditional concepts and values.

The Pinoleville Pomo Nation Housing Authority intends to explore and effectively administer ingenius programs to maintain the existing housing supply and create new housing opportunities for the residents we serve and to provide supportive services and resources to residents and community members to promote self-sufficiency, health, stability, and improved lifestyles.

My name is Alicia Tlelo, I am the Housing Coordinator for Pinoleville Pomo Nation and was born and raised in Ukiah. I have an extensive background in housing, planning, and development. I am happy to be part of the community in which we serve. The services we provide include low-income housing and housing assistance. Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 we have additional funding for Emergency Rental and Utility Assistance for low-income households who were negatively affected. My overall goal is to continue making a significant contribution to the success of Pinoleville Pomo Nation and the Housing Department. I look forward to welcoming more housing and see myself settling in here for many years to come. If you have any questions regarding any of our programs, please feel free to contact me directly at (707) 463-1454 Ext. 114 or email me at aliciat@pinoleville-nsn.gov.
