“This funding invests in our tribal communities and provides vital services for the tribes’ at-risk residents.” said Regional Administrator Ulysses M. Clayborn. “HUD’s Native American partners will use these resources to increase housing supply, expand economic opportunity, and raise up families in Kansas”.
HUD’s Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program provides funding to Tribes to construct new housing units for low-income families living in Tribal communities. Tribes most often use this funding to support the construction of new housing units, which will also help spur economic opportunities in these communities.
