WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded $63 million to 85 Native American communities throughout the country to improve housing conditions and stimulate community development for residents, including funding construction projects that generate local job opportunities. HUD's Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Program supports a wide range of community development and affordable housing activities. See a list of award winners below.

"HUD is committed to supporting affordable housing and economic opportunities for Native American communities across the country," said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. "These grants will generate other investments from public and private sources to create economic opportunities, improve housing conditions and create jobs in Indian country."

The ICDBG Program was established in 1977 to help Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages meet their community development needs. Federally recognized Indian tribes, bands, groups or nations (including Alaska Indian, Aleuts, and Eskimos), Alaska Native villages, and eligible tribal organizations compete for this funding each year.

The goal of the program is to develop viable Indian and Alaska Native communities, including neighborhoods with decent housing, suitable living environments, and economic opportunities. Communities can use the grants to rehabilitate or build new housing; to buy land for housing; for infrastructure projects such as roads, water and sewer facilities; and to spur economic development including jobs.

The ICDBG Program supports a broad range of housing and community development activities including:

  • Housing rehabilitation and land acquisition to support new housing construction, and under limited circumstances, new housing construction.
  • Infrastructure construction, e.g., roads, water and sewer facilities, and single- or multi-purpose community buildings.
  • Wide variety of commercial, industrial, agricultural projects, which may be recipient owned and operated or which may be owned and/or operated by a third party.
