The Crow Creek Okodakiciyapi Asset Building Initiative is a multifaceted, intergenerational community collaborative that is designed to deal with the lack of sufficient housing, high unemployment, and deficiencies of educational opportunities for the CC Reservation.

Challenge

The Crow Creek Sioux Reservation has numerous unmet needs in housing, entrepreneurship, and education, in which a lack of community assets continues to perpetuate as our community members have less access to higher education, the financial stability of home ownership, and job opportunities through entrepreneurship. Buffalo County, nearly encompassed by the Crow Creek Sioux Reservation, was named the nation's poorest county with a per capita income of $11,719 and an unemployment rate of 58%.

Solution

The current realities of the economy within our community have deviated from the foundation of traditional native communities. the ultimate goal of the project is to fight generational poverty and increase self determination for the Crow Creek Tribal Nation through the building of assets on the reservation by assisting individuals in the growth of housing, small business, and education. the building of assets will be achieved by establishing IDA's and financial education for all generations.

Long-Term Impact

The creation of a collaborative that will promote asset building within the reservation will allow for a paradigm change in the economic environment and the fight against poverty. By encouraging asset building at every stage in life, we increase the likelihood of creating permanent change in the spending habits of our people, drastically aiding in the anti-poverty movement occurring in our tribal community. As a result, all members will be more equipped rather than living paycheck to paycheck.
