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