HUD: $95.5 Million Awarded for Affordable Housing and Community Development Activities in Native American Communities

Funds support development and operation of low-income housing

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded $95 million to 55 communities through the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Program. Grant funds may be used for infrastructure, community facilities, housing rehabilitation, economic development, and more to support Native American and Alaskan Native families on Indian reservations and in other Indian areas.

“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to sharing resources with Tribal communities so they can meet their own unique needs,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “The funding announced today will help make Tribal communities safer, healthier, and help families thrive.”

The ICDBG program is a competitive grant that provides a range of eligible activities on reservations and related areas. Eligible activities include housing rehabilitation, land acquisition, roads, water and sewer facilities, and single or multipurpose community buildings.
