The DCH verifies information provided by the applicant; income, household, past Landlord reports, and a Wisconsin Circuit Court Access Program. The court report is examined because the Federal Law states a person can be denied housing for certain criminal activities.
All selected tenants are required to abide by all policies of the DCH in addition to the Stockbridge-Munsee Housing Law and Public Peace and Good Order Ordinance. Evictions and grievances are heard through the Stockbridge-Munsee Tribal Court.
