This week, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced it is sending more than $1.1 million to two Native American tribes in Florida.
The funds are part of more than $794 million in Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) “for eligible Native American Tribes, Alaska Native Villages, and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) to carry out affordable housing activities in tribal communities.”
U.S. HUD Sec. Marcia Fudge announced the funds on Tuesday.
“HUD is committed to supporting our Tribal communities by providing resources that will help persons living in those neighborhoods thrive,” said Fudge. “We know that these grants will not only be used to create affordable housing, but they will also provide much needed wrap-around services and solutions to complex issues.”
“The IHBG program is a formula grant that provides a range of affordable housing activities on reservations and related areas. Eligible activities include housing development, operation and modernization of existing housing, housing services to eligible families and individuals, crime prevention and safety, and model activities that provide creative approaches to solving affordable housing challenges,” HUD noted.
The Seminole Tribe of Florida in Hollywood will get $1,016,708 from HUD. The Miccosukee Tribe in Miami will receive $87,122 from HUD.
