Welcome to Isleta Pueblo Housing Authority
The IPHA has been in existence since 1996 when Isleta Pueblo, along with other Pueblos, removed itself from the All Indian Pueblo Housing Authority (AIPHA). The Isleta Pueblo Housing Authority operates under an Ordinance adopted by the Tribal Council in 1996. Under this Ordinance, A Board of Commissioners is identified as the governing body for the IPHA.
In December 2010, Tribal Council established a five member Board of Commissioners of the IPHA. The IPHA is a separate legal entity with is own federal tax identification number and a set of laws (the “Ordinance”) which sets forth its powers, authorities and limitations, and governs its activities.
