Tipi Zannika (Healthy Homes) Mold Remediation Program

Creating Healthier Living Environments

The Mold Remediation program began at the request of the Oglala Sioux Tribal Council in 2006. Tipi Zannika’s main objective is to remediate mold in bathrooms, basements, and kitchens. Starting in 2009 Oglala Sioux Lakota Housing began obtaining grants to completed mold remediation projects throughout the reservation. The program staff consists of two four-man carpentry crews with a plumber and an electrician.

Two projects are in process.

TZ6 15 Category 2

Using an $800,000 grant from HUD and $342,860 from OSLH to target 150 units (140 bathrooms, 50 basements and 20 kitchens). We are doing environmental reviews now and will start renovations in October 2016 with a completion target date of September 2017.
