HUD Announces $221 Million to Tribal CommunitiesAugust 12th, 2022 by Editor
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced that it will make $221 million available in competitive funding for affordable housing and community development projects for low-to-moderate income persons in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
“The Biden-Harris Administration has made unprecedented investments in Tribal communities,” said secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “This funding made available by HUD will build on the Administration’s efforts to deliver more equitable outcomes for Tribes. With this funding, Tribes can support affordable housing and increase economic opportunity for their members, especially those with low incomes.”
HUD will award approximately $129 million in fiscal year 2022 competitive funding through the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Competitive Program to help Indian Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) carry out affordable housing activities for the benefit of low-income American Indian and Alaska Native families. HUD will give funding priority for new housing construction projects, housing rehabilitation projects, acquisition of existing housing units that increase affordable housing stock, and necessary affordable housing-related infrastructure projects.
The deadline for submitting applications to the IHBG Competitive Grant Program is 11:59 PM EST on November 17, 2022. CLICK HERE for more information about the IHBG Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).
