OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says the HoChunk Community Development Corp. in Winnebago, NE was awarded $800,000 to improve housing conditions and stimulate community development for residents.
Hud says the grant is part of the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Program which "supports a wide range of community development and affordable housing activities."
“HUD is committed to supporting affordable housing and economic opportunities for Native American communities across the country,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “These grants will generate other investments from public and private sources to create economic opportunities, improve housing conditions and create jobs in Indian country.”
The grant was one of 85 given to tribal communities around the country.
