HUD has extended the deadline for tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) to submit their Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Competitive Grant applications. The deadline was previously November 17, 2022, but has now been extended to January 24, 2023. Approximately $129 million will be made available in Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Competitive Grants. Further details on the associated Notice of Funding Opportunity can be found at grants.gov.
The IHBG Competitive Grant was created by Congress as part of the FY2018 omnibus spending package and directed HUD to award grants to tribes based on need and capacity. Due in part to the leadership of Senator Mike Rounds (R-SD), the program allows TDHEs to build and rehabilitate desperately needed affordable homes for American Indians and Alaska Natives (see Memo, 11/5/2018). Funding for the IHBG program increased from $100 million in FY2021 to $150 million in FY2022, thanks to advocacy from tribal housing leaders.
