The Coeur d’Alene Tribe (CDT) maintains a centralized organizational framework supporting the provision of essential governmental services. The legislative branch of the Tribal Government is composed of a seven member Tribal Council who delegates authority to an Administrative Director for the overall management of the daily governmental activities. Separate entities have been established by the Tribe for areas in which the scope of services is broader, requires more specialized functions, or generates revenue through various sources including customer charges. The Coeur d’Alene Tribal Housing Authority (CDTHA) is such an entity.
