FY 2023 Community Development Block Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages NOFO
The purpose of the Indian Community Development Block Grant (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 of low and moderate income. See the ICDBG regulation at 24 CFR 1003.2.
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 NOFO.
b. Imminent Threat Grants. Projects funded with Imminent Threat grant funds are to address issues that have an immediate negative impact on public health or safety of tribal residents.
You do not have to apply for an Imminent Threat grant by the deadline established in this NOFO. These Imminent Threat grant funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the amount set aside for this purpose is expended. The Imminent Threat request must be submitted to the Area Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) for your region in accordance with ONAP Program Guidance 2018-04, “Imminent Threat Grants” and the requirements in 24 CFR part 1003 subpart E.
