Chickasaw citizens have access to programs to help with down payments or assistance with repairs, plus rental programs are available for those who aren't quite ready to take the leap into home ownership. Citizens even have the opportunity to pick out plants and sod for their homes. Additionally, there are a wide variety of community services available for Chickasaws from all walks of life.
Citizens who own their homes, whether or not they live within the Nation's boundaries, are eligible to receive free landscaping through Chickasaw Farms, which is open from April to October. The sod farm and greenhouse exist to enhance the overall appearance and value of Chickasaw homes. To apply for the program, Chickasaw homeowners must bring their citizenship card, proof of home ownership, and a utility bill. They will then be eligible to receive landscaping products and sod.
