About the Fort Peck/Make it Right Project
Make It Right is partnering with the Sioux and Assiniboine tribes of Fort Peck, Montana to build sustainable homes on their reservation. The Method Homes-built house on display at Dwell on Design, is one of 20 Cradle to Cradle-inspired, LEED Platinum homes that Make it Right is building for tribe members in need of housing. Overcrowding is a chronic problem on the Fort Peck Reservation where multiple families commonly live together in two bedroom homes, and currently, there are more than 600 people waiting for housing.

The solar-powered homes will have 3-4 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms and be available to tribe members whose income levels are at or below 60% of the Area Median Income. A percentage of the homes will be dedicated to senior adult and disabled veteran housing. Homeownership will be structured through a Low Income Housing Tax Credit Rent-to-Own program with ownership transferring to the tenant after 15 years of renting. http://makeitright.org/where-we-work/montana/
