What types of grants are available for Indian housing and community development?

HUD awards grants to tribes and other Indian entities through either a competitive process (discretionary grants), or on a formula basis in the case of the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Program. The competitions for discretionary grant programs are announced in the HUD SuperNOFA, which is published once each Federal fiscal year.

Program Descriptions

Indian Community Development Block Grant Program (ICDBG)
Provides Indian tribes (and certain Indian organizations applying on behalf of tribes) with direct grants for use in developing viable Indian and Alaska Native Communities, including decent housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities, primarily for low and moderate income persons.

Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Program
A formula grant that allows tribes or tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs) to provide a range of affordable housing activities on a reservation or Indian area. These activities are identified and described in an Indian Housing Plan (IHP) (MS-Word) which is prepared each year and submitted to HUD for review and compliance with NAHASDA.
