Hundreds of Native American Tribes to Receive $563 Million in Affordable Housing Grants

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $563 million to 353 American Indian and Alaskan Native entities as part of the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Program. The IHBG funds are distributed annually to eligible American Indian tribes and tribal housing programs in order to facilitate affordable housing within Native American communities.

“Hardworking American families in tribal communities should be able to live in communities where they have a fair shot to reach their potential,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

“The resources provided today will give these tribal communities the tools to maintain quality housing, prevent overcrowding, improve public safety and provide other basic building blocks of security and success,”  he continued.

The IHBG funds can be used toward a wide variety of tribal housing activities — from building affordable housing to creating crime prevention programs. The funds can also be used to provide assistance to existing HUD housing developed under the Indian Housing Program.

The Indian Housing Block Grant Program was established by the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996, according to a press release issued Wednesday.

  2. I leave a response each time I like a post on a site or I have something to valuable
    to contribute to the discussion. It’s a result of the sincerness displayed in the article I read.
    And after this article Hundreds of Native American Tribes to
    Receive $563 Million in Affordable Housing Grants | American Indian
    Report. I was moved enough to post a thought :-) I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it only me or do some of the responses appear like they are written by brain dead
    visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites,
    I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list the complete urls of your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually
    something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

  4. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
