HUD Awards More Than $90 Million for Affordable Housing in Tribal Communities
24 Tribes receive funds that will support the construction of approximately 350 new housing units.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today announced over $90 million in grant awards to 24 Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) across the country to support new housing construction, housing rehabilitation, and critical infrastructure projects.

"This past year was a stark reminder of just how important access to safe, stable housing is—especially in Tribal communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic," said Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. "The funding HUD is awarding today will support much needed affordable housing investments in Indian Country."

The funds were awarded through HUD's Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Competitive program to help construct new housing units for low-income families living in Tribal communities. It is projected that this funding will support the construction of approximately 350 new housing units, which will help spur economic opportunities in these communities. This year's IHBG competition generated a lot of interest and was very oversubscribed with a total of 141 applicants submitted by Tribes and TDHEs. This is the second time HUD is making awards under this program; the first round of awards was made in December 2019.
