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
The IHBG program allocates formula funding to tribes or tribally designated housing entities for the delivery of a range of affordable housing opportunities and housing-related activities to low and moderate income members of Federally recognized Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages, and native Hawaiians. Each year, IHBG recipients identify and report on IHBG-funded activities using the Indian Housing Plan/Annual Performance Report (HUD-52737).
