Dear Tribal Leader:
On January 15, 2021, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published the NOFO for the Tribal HUD-VASH Expansion Program. The NOFO announced the availability of approximately $3.2 million for competitive grants to eligible Indian tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs). In Round I, HUD awarded $1,021,818 in funding. On November 2, 2021, HUD re-published the NOFO to award the remaining $2,212,614 in funding (Round II). Applicants have until 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on January 18, 2022, to submit an application. For further information about this funding opportunity, please visit www.grants.gov and Codetalk (www.hud.gov/codetalk). Award recipients from Round I are not eligible to apply for Round II.
The Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) will host a training webinar to review the NOFO and the application process, as well as address your questions. It will be held December 7-8, 2021, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. ET.
