The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) awarded $55.2 million to 77 Native American tribes through its Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Program to improve housing conditions and stimulate economic development in their communities.
 
The ICDBG program was established in 1977 to help Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages. Among the recipients of this latest funding are Maine’s Penobscot Tribe, who will build 24 new energy-efficient senior rental housing units, and Texas’ Alabama-Coushatta Tribe, who will improve the public water quality and pipeline-carrying capacity for more 89 homes and 12 non-residential buildings on the east side of their reservation.
 
"These grants will support our Native American communities as they work to improve housing conditions and neighborhoods," said HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson. "HUD will continue to be a steadfast partner to tribes as they design and execute their community development plans."
