HUD allots $12 million to improve health, safety at low-income, Native American housing units

NATION: U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allotted $12 million to improve the safety and health for children and families at 1,300 low-income tribal homes across the Nation.

Healthy Homes Production operates “to develop comprehensive programs to identify and remediate housing issues that contribute to health and safety issues in urban and tribal communities,” such as lead paint, per information provided by the Administration for Native Americans.

The Healthy Homes Production Grant Program for Tribal Housing is not viable for use with some homes, based on construction after 1977, Section 8 status, 1937 ACT Units, Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996, and public housing.

The individual breakdown of how the money will be allotted to the tribal communities is listed in HUD’s documents for the program, and will affect areas in New York, North Dakota, North Carolina, Montana, Arizona, and Alaska.
