Welcome! The Kashia Band of Pomo Indians of the Stewarts Point Rancheria is a Federally Recognized Tribe located in Sonoma County of California.
PROPOSED ICDBG APPLICATION
Due to the extreme shortage of affordable housing in the greater Santa Rosa area, and because many Tribal Members live in this area, Kashia Housing Department is considering filing an application for an ICDBG (Indian Community Development Block Grant) Grant in just a few weeks.
This is a competitive federal grant, and if awarded, the award could be up to $605,000. The funding can only be used for affordable housing activities. Kashia Housing Department proposes to use these funds (if awarded) to purchase land in the Santa Rosa area on which to build affordable rental housing for low-income Tribal families.
This is a multi-year project and the first step is to acquire land. But we need to hear from you!
Kashia housing will be holding a meeting on Thursday, September 24th, at Housing’s offices at 1420 Guerneville Road, Suite 3 (to the left of the Tribal Office), from 6pm to 7pm. The meeting will provide attendees with info about the ICDBG Grant, the potential funds, and the range of possible activities that the funds can be used for. This is an informational meeting and a chance to comment and discuss these ideas. Please RSVP as we will be serving refreshments.
The Housing Department wants to hear your comments!
Please call 707-591-0580 extension 114 to RSVP
We need your comments by September 30, 2015

KASHIA BAND OF POMO INDIANS HAS DECLARED A DROUGHT EMERGENCY
The Kashia Band of Pomo Indians were the first inhabitants of the coastal Sonoma County area around Fort Ross. The Kashia lived in lands that extended from the Gualala River in the North to Duncan’s Point south of the Russian River. From the West, Kashia territory extended from the pacific coast over coastal mountain ranges down the Warm Springs Creek to the confluence of Dry Creek, thirty miles inland. An estimated 1,500 people inhabited this area pre-contact, and migrated seasonally throughout this territory to take full advantage of the resources for their subsistence. By 1870, only 3 villages remained and by 1914, the United States Federal Government began the process of taking land into Trust, establishing the Stewarts Point Rancheria.
The Kashia Band of Pomo Indians has approximately 860 members, with the majority of Tribal members residing in Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and Napa Counties which is the service area for the Kashia Band of Pomo Indians of Stewarts point Rancheria. The Kashia Band of Pomo Indians has a Tribal Government Office located in Santa Rosa, California.
