NM Gas Energy Efficiency Program
We’re pleased to announce that SIHA has been selected as a New Mexico Gas Company Native American Energy Efficiency Program partner. The New Mexico Gas Native American Energy Efficiency Program will provide NO-COST energy efficiency services to help tribal seniors save energy and money.
We’ve signed up the maximum of thirty seniors 60 and above to receive these services in a first round of services through the end of the year. We’ve also received about 15 applications from seniors who we hope to serve with a second round of services in February of 2023. We still need about 15 applications to fill up the second round. If you’re a senior over 60 who owns your home on the Pueblo and would like these services,
call or e-mail Business Services Manager, Christopher Romero, at (505) 455-4162, firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the SIHA office to sign up for the February program.
COVID Relief Packages
Home Improvement Program
Tribal Council is considering a SIHA request to match SIHA funding dedicated to home repairs with Pueblo ARP funding for a Home Improvement Program.
If adopted, the program will make up to $7,500 in emergency repairs available to low-income homeowners. Non-low-income Pueblo homeowners will also be eligible to receive up to $7,500 in home repairs of their choice, However, non-low-income homebuyers will be required to match the home improvement grant on a dollar-for-dollar basis in order to qualify for participation in the program.
We will open up the program waiting list to everyone and provide more program information once the NM Energy and COVID relief Package projects are completed.

Housing Emergency Procedure
SIHA has received a large number of requests for a 24-hour, 7 days a week, emergency number to call to support Members who experience housing emergencies. We do NOT have this service available, yet.
Pueblo homeowners are reminded that while SIHA does plan to make extensive services like those described above available on a regular basis, it is homeowners responsibility, not SIHA’s, to maintain your home.
While we work to develop an on-call service for Members over time, Tribal Council has asked us to publish the following list of 24-hour, 7 days a week emergency service providers that Members can call anytime in the event of a housing emergency.
