Below is a recap of the various open HUD Funding Opportunities. Please feel free to share this with your colleagues in Indian Country.
Indian Community Development Block Grant (regular) – Applications due 10/25/2021
The NOFO announced the availability of approximately $76.5 million for competitive grants to Indian tribes. Funding appropriated for this NOFO covers one fiscal year (FY21), whereas the previous NOFO covered two fiscal years (FY19/20). The primary objective of the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) program is the development of viable Indian and Alaska Native communities, including the creation of decent housing, suitable living environments, and economic opportunities primarily for persons of low-and moderate-incomes.
Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) Competitive – Applications due 12/1/2021
Under this NOFO, approximately $95 million in IHBG Competitive Grants are available to eligible Indian tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs) to carry out affordable housing activities for the benefit of low-income Native American families. In accordance with the FY21 Consolidated Appropriations Act, HUD will prioritize grant applications that will spur housing construction and rehabilitation.
Continuum of Care (CoC) – Applications for existing CoCs due 11/16/2021
HUD is making $2.656 billion in FY 2021 Continuum of Care Program (CoC) competitive funding available to homeless services organizations across the country for supportive services and housing programs for people experiencing homelessness. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Public Law 116-260, approved December 27, 2020) amended title IV section 435 of the Act to allow Indian Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE) to be Collaborative Applicants, eligible entities, or subrecipients of the CoC Program in addition to amending title IV section 401 to add the terms “Formula Area” and “Indian Tribe.” These amendments mean that not only may Tribes and TDHEs apply for grants through other CoCs, but that formula areas, as that term is defined in the Indian Housing Block Grant program at 24 CFR 1000.302, are eligible to be added to the geographic areas of existing CoCs or may be included in newly formed CoCs. HUD has chosen to implement integration of Tribes and TDHEs into the CoC program in stages because tribal consultation is not yet complete. For the FY 2021 competition, Tribes and TDHEs will be eligible to apply for projects through existing CoCs only.
