Seniors Finalist: Bii Di Gain Dash Anwebi

Bii Di Gain Dash Anwebi will ensure that aging American Indians and other seniors can continue to live in Minneapolis' Phillips neighborhood. This is one of the largest urban American Indian neighborhoods in the nation.

Many services that are used by the American Indian elders are within walking distance, including the Minneapolis Indian Center, the Indian Health Board, and the Running Wolf Fitness Center.

Bii Di Gain Dash Anwebi means "come in, rest" in Ojibwe.

Advantage Services, CommonBond Communities' resident services department, provides on-site resources and programs to help seniors maintain their independence.

The development provides 47 units for residents 62 and older with incomes at or below 50 percent of the area median income. Project rental assistance contracts allow for residents to pay only 30 percent of their income toward rent.
