Bingaman: Santo Domingo Housing Authority Awarded Housing Funds

WASHINGTON, DC – April 29, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman reported today that Santo Domingo Tribal Housing Authority has been awarded a $1.02 million grant to help meet the pueblos housing needs.

“Quality, affordable housing is out of reach for many people in our state and the problem is especially prevalent on tribal lands.  This funding is an important investment in the Santo Domino community,” Bingaman said.

Funds were awarded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA) Indian Housing Block Grant Program. The pueblos can use the funds to implement a number of affordable housing activities. Those activities may include: new construction, acquisition, modernization or rehabilitation of rental or owner-occupied housing.
