The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded $600,000 to the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Akwesasne Housing Authority to improve energy efficiency and indoor air quality in 96 homes.
The grants are part of HUD’s Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Program, which supports a wide range of community development and affordable housing activities.
“This investment will expand affordable housing and economic opportunities for families in Native American communities across the country.” said HUD Principal Deputy Secretary for Public and Indian Housing, Lourdes Castro Ramírez. “We are proud to continue collaborating with tribal leaders to improve housing conditions and to lift up neighborhoods with vital new infrastructure and vibrant community spaces.”
