Grand Canyon National Park
Supai Camp housing
One of the highlights of the park’s partnership initiative was the work done with the Havasupai Tribe to improve homes at a small housing area on the South Rim known as Supai Camp. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds were obligated and a construction contract was awarded for the construction of six new handicap-accessible housing units (three duplexes). This housing area was established by the NPS in the 1930s for tribe members who were relocated from other areas in the park. Upgrades to water and sewage utilities
Through our partnership with the Havasupai ribe, we were able to provide adequate housing for tribal elders and families who live and work on the South Rim. Funds allocated to the park through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act gave us the opportunity to complete this long standing and necessary project.

were completed and on Aug. 5, 2010, the new duplexes were presented to the tribe. Rehabilitation is now underway on the old cabins in Supai Camp. This project fulfills past promises to the tribe and addresses NPS concerns about living conditions and infrastructure at the camp.
The park finished upgrading water and sewage systems at Supai Camp housing area. These dwellings have been provided to the Havasupai Tribe since the 1930s by a long-standing agreement.
