FY2017 Community Development Block Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages
The purpose of the ICDBG program is the development of viable Indian and Alaska Native communities, including the creation of decent housing, suitable living environments, and economic opportunities primarily for persons with low- and moderate- incomes.
a. Single Purpose Grants. Projects funded by the ICDBG program must principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons (24 CFR 1003.208). These are competitive grants and are the subject of this NOFA.
b. Imminent Threat Grants. Applicants may also apply for ICDBG funds to address issues that have an immediate negative impact on public health or safety of tribal residents. Applicants do not have to submit an application for these grants, as they are awarded on a first-come first-serve basis. Please contact your Area ONAP for additional information.
Congress has not yet appropriated funds for this program. Therefore, the amount of available funding is not known and is contingent on future Congressional action.
