FY 1998 SuperNOFA Guidebook

Indian Housing Block Grants (IHBG)

The Indian Housing Block Grant program was created by the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996. This Act also repealed Indian eligibility for many other HUD programs (those falling under the U.S. Housing Act of 1937), including some which are announced in the SuperNOFAs. It provides annual grants, on a formula basis, to all eligible Indian tribes and Alaska Native Villages upon approval of an Indian Housing Plan. The funds may be used for a wide range of affordable housing activities. For FY98�the first year of implementing the IHBG program�approximately $600 million (less set-asides) is appropriated for the IHBG program.

Anyone with questions regarding the Indian Housing Block Grant program should contact their area Office of Native American Programs (ONAP). A list of the area ONAPs is provided in Appendix B.
