Tester Announces More Than $26M for Affordable Housing in Indian Country

$26,251,574 in grants awarded to Montana’s Tribal communities to expand housing initiatives

U.S. Senator Jon Tester announced that Montana’s Tribes have been awarded more than $26 million in grant funding to bolster affordable housing in Indian Country.

“All Montanans should have a place to call home, but far too many in Indian Country struggle to find one,” Tester said. “These resources will give Tribes a much-needed boost to their housing initiatives, allowing them to provide more folks with safe, affordable places to live.”

The grants are awarded under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 through the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the development and operation of low-income housing.

Grant Awards:

· Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes – $4,817,76

· Blackfeet Tribe – $6,549,078

· Chippewa Cree Tribe– $2,574,468

· Crow Tribe – $2,232,573

· Fort Belknap Indian Community – $2,161,053

· Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes– $5,100,112

· Northern Cheyenne Tribe – $2,816,529

Tester has long supported the development of affordable housing in Indian Country. Earlier this year, he played a key role in negotiating a budget deal that invested millions into Tribal housing initiatives. He also introduced the Tribal HUD-VASH Act to provide rental and housing assistance to homeless and at-risk Native American veterans.
