Warm Springs to receive $1.5 million housing grant
The Warm Springs Confederated Tribes will receive $1.5 million to improve low-income housing. The money comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
"The U.S. government has a responsibility to carry out trust obligations to Indian tribes," says HUD Acting Secretary Matthew Ammon. "And with this funding, HUD is acting to meet these obligations."
The money is part of $652 million distributed to nearly 600 tribes through the Indian Housing Block Grant.
According to a statement released by HUD, the communities can use the funds in a variety of ways, including housing development, modernizing existing housing, crime prevention and model activities that provide creative approaches to solving affordable housing problems.
