Housing Improvement Program
Document Number: 2014-30692
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-01-02
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs
The Bureau of Indian Affairs is proposing to amend its regulations governing its Housing Improvement Program, which is a safety-net program that provides grants for repairing, renovating, or replacing existing housing and for providing new housing. This proposed rule is an important part of the Tiwahe initiative, which is designed to promote the stability and security of Indian families. The proposed rule would align the program with other Federal requirements, allow leveraging of housing funds to increase the number of families served and projects funded, and expedite processing of waiting lists for housing assistance.
