OHKAY OWINGEH HOUSING AUTHORITYOWE’NEH BUPINGAH REHABILITATION PROJECT (21 units) Multi-year, affordable housing, rehabilitation project within the historic pueblo core on the east bank of the Rio Grande River. The 915 acre historic core today contains over 100 buildings including ancient house blocks, an historic 1890 chapel, a larger church constructed on the original footprint of the 1598 mission church, and various tribal government facilities. The condition of the historic buildings is very poor. An historic preservation plan was developed to establish the Pueblo’s goals to preserve living traditions - including the use of indigenous materials such as adobe and mud plaster. Work began with an educational project through which tribal youth were trained in architectural surveying and satellite-based GPS technology. Tribal elders have also been involved in the project through an oral history project that has recorded memories of traditions and buildings. Construction is underway for 21 homes and HUD ICDBG funding has been received for an additional 10 homes.
