Chuka Chukmasi Loan Program

Kay Perry, Director of Counseling and Loan Services

The Chickasaw Nation's Chuka Chukmasi loan program helps citizens get into the home of their dreams. Meaning "beautiful home" in Chickasaw, Chuka Chukmasi provides loans to buy or build a new house, remodel or refinance a current one. The overall goal of Chuka Chukmasi is to create more Chickasaw homeowners. Since the program's inception in 2000, it has generated over $100 million in loan volume. Services include home loans, home improvement loans, construction loans, and subordinated second mortgages. The grant program, which is a one-time benefit, assists with down payment and closing costs when purchasing or doing a rate-term finance.
