(NAHASDA) changed the way that housing assistance is provided to Native Americans. NAHASDA eliminated several separate assistance programs and replaced them with a single block grant program, known as the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program. The regulations governing the IHBG formula allocation are codified in subpart D of part 1000 of HUD’s regulations in title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations. In accordance with section 106 of NAHASDA, HUD developed the regulations with active tribal participation using the procedures of the Negotiated Rulemaking Act of 1990 (5 U.S.C. 561–570). Under the IHBG program, HUD makes assistance available to eligible Indian tribes for affordable housing activities. The amount of assistance made available to each Indian tribe is determined using a formula that was developed as part of the NAHASDA negotiated process. Based on the amount of funding appropriated for the IHBG program, HUD calculates the annual grant for each Indian tribe and provides this information to the Indian tribes.

housing assistance is provided to Native Americans. NAHASDA eliminated 
several separate assistance programs and replaced them with a single 
block grant program, known as the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) 
program. The regulations governing the IHBG formula allocation are 
codified in subpart D of part 1000 of HUD's regulations in title 24 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations. In accordance with section 106 of 
NAHASDA, HUD developed the regulations with active tribal participation 
using the procedures of the Negotiated Rulemaking Act of 1990 (5 U.S.C.

    Under the IHBG program, HUD makes assistance available to eligible 
Indian tribes for affordable housing activities. The amount of 
assistance made available to each Indian tribe is determined using a 
formula that was developed as part of the NAHASDA negotiated process. 
Based on the amount of funding appropriated for the IHBG program, HUD 
calculates the annual grant for each Indian tribe and provides this
