The Pyramid Lake Housing Authority is committed to providing the opportunity for safe, decent, sanitary and affordable housing for enrolled members of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe and to do so in a way that is consistent with the Tribe's social, cultural, and economic values.
The Pyramid Lake Housing Authority (PLHA) was established by Ordinance Number X adopted by the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Council on February 7, 1963, and amended with Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Council Resolution #28-07 on April 20, 2007. Article IV of the Ordinance established a Board of Commissioners composed of five persons. Each Commissioner serves staggered four-year terms and is appointed to serve by the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Council. PLHA Board of Commissioner meetings are held monthly and special meetings are scheduled as needed. The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Council adopted resolution number PL 72-97 which designated the PLHA as the Tribally Designated Housing Entity (TDHE) for the Tribe. The Pyramid Lake Housing Authority has been in operation for over 50 years.
