Sitka Tribe of Alaska is the federally recognized government for more than 4000 Tribal Citizens who are primarily of Tlingit, Haida, Aleut and Tsimpsian Heritage in the Sheet'-Ká area which encompasses all of Baranof Island (Shee) and the southern and western half of Chicagof Island in the Alexander Archipelago of Southeastern Alaska.

Baranof Island Housing Authority receives its primary funding through the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Indian Housing Block Grant program. This program enables BIHA to provide housing services to eligible STA Tribal Citizens and other Alaska Natives and American Indians living in Sitka.

Additionally, BIHA receives development funds from State of Alaska legislative appropriations and other federal, state and local agencies. These sources help fund BIHA's programs that are not subject to NAHASDA rules and regulations, such as our Senior Housing.
