The historic Pueblo is of vital importance to the preservation of the Ohkay Owingeh cultural heritage, as it is the location of most ceremonial activities and through the Owe’neh Bupingeh Rehabilitation Program, will again be a thriving residential area. Ohkay Owingeh is proud of the Pueblo’s history and heritage, and is committed to revitalizing its spiritual center through knowledge, conservation, rehabilitation and, as appropriate, new construction. The ultimate goal of this fifteen year project is to revitalize the entire historic core of Ohkay Owingeh.

To date, the project has now received a total of $8,972,563 for all the planning efforts, design and construction. OOHA broke ground July 2010 on the first phase of construction, which was twenty homes. OOHA has worked closely with an Advisory Committee and Cultural Advisory Team to identify priorities for the rehabilitation, ownership of the homes, and minimum threshold requirements by funding sources. Over 29 families have qualified to receive assistance for their unit in the Pueblo, and the waiting list will help the OOHA to develop opportunities for additional funding.

Currently, the variety of leveraged funding sources consist of NM Historic Preservation Division, NPS Tribal Preservation Program, McCune Foundation, Chamiza Foundation, 08 RHED, 08 ICDBG, 08, 12 HOME, 09 ARRA IHBG, 09 ICDBG, 04, 05, 07, 08, 09, 10, and 13 IHBG. An additional $10,000,0000 is needed to complete the project. We anticipate completing the project within the next five to seven years.
