Native American Housing Block Grant Allocations

Since 1996, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) distributes over $660m in grant allocations to help low-income Native Americans with a range of affordable housing activities. Covering housing management services, crime prevention and safety, and other activities to provide affordable housing, the program has helped recipients build or acquire almost 37,000 affordable homes and rehabilitated more than 77,000 housing units.
