Dear Tribal Leader:
I am pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has published a second NOFO for the Tribal HUD-VASH Expansion program. This NOFO announces the availability of approximately $2.2 million for competitive grants to eligible Indian tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs).
This is an exciting opportunity to fund rental assistance for Native American Veterans who have answered our Nation’s calls to serve and are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Tribal Nations work hard every day to assist Native Americans Veterans with finding a safe place to call home. I strongly encourage you to apply, and to take advantage of the training opportunities.
The deadline to submit applications is January 18, 2022, at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time. To apply, please visit grants.gov and search by using the keyword ‘VASH’. All interested applicants are encouraged to participate in Tribal HUD-VASH trainings, which HUD will announce in the near future. All program updates and training materials will be made available on Codetalk.
Thank you for your interest in the expansion of the Tribal HUD-VASH program and for your continued partnership in serving Indian Country. If you have questions about the NOFO, please email TribalHUDVASH@hud.gov or contact your Area Office of Native American
Heidi J. Frechette
Deputy Assistant Secretary
