Background The Native American Housing and Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4141 et seq.) (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 E:\FR\FM\13MRP1.SGM 13MRP1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 49 / Thursday, March 13, 2014 / Proposed Rules ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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. An Indian Housing Plan for the Indian tribe is then submitted to HUD. If the Indian Housing Plan is found to be in compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements, the grant is made. On June 12, 2013 (78 FR 35178), HUD announced in the Federal Register the list of proposed members for the negotiated rulemaking committee, and requested additional public comment on the proposed membership. On July 30, 2013 (78 FR 45903), HUD announced the final list of committee members and announced the first meeting of the negotiated rulemaking committee.

I. Background

    The Native American Housing and Assistance and Self-Determination 
Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4141 et seq.) (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

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. An Indian Housing Plan for the Indian tribe is then 
submitted to HUD. If the Indian Housing Plan is found to be in 
compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements, the grant is 
made.
