About Us


North Idaho Native Fund (NINF) located inside the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Housing Authority in Plummer, Idaho

NINF incorporated under the Coeur d’Alene Tribe on September 28, 2017 as a Nonprofit Corporation. We have since then obtained 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, and have been operating under two CDFI Fund Native American Assistance Programs (NACA Program) under the Department of US Treasury.  As an Emerging Entity, NINF is dedicated to providing developmental services such as training and technical assistance in various types of financial services (financial literacy, savings plans, consumer loans, business loans, debt consolidation, etc.) to clients in and around the Coeur d’Alene Reservation. 

At the end of 2020, NINF will apply for Certification to the CDFI Fund. CDFI Certification is a formal acknowledgment from the CDFI Fund that a financial institution meets certain community development finance measures.
