of our clients. We pride ourselves in the positive relationship we have with the
Tribes, Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE) and the regional associations,
such as the Southern Plains Indian Housing Association.

mission of HUD and are here to assist you. Our office is comprised of three major
components: the Grants Evaluation Division that works with the Audits, Annual
Performance Report, Self-Monitoring guidelines, technical assistance and client
monitoring; the Grants Management Division provides technical assistance related
to NAHASDA Indian Housing Block Grant implementation, the Indian Housing Plan
and Indian Community Development Block Grant implementation; and the office of
the Administrator that works with the Section 184 loan program, Title VI, Green

to see all Native Americans prospering, gaining self-sufficiency and a part of
the American Dream of homeownership. We want to see our Native communities growing
and flourishing by providing funding for quality facilities to enhance the well
being of the Tribal members they serve or the planning and implementation of economic
development endeavors to create more employment for their Tribal members.
