Department of Housing and Urban Development: Sustainable Construction in Indian Country Small Grant Program

by:

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, otherwise known as HUD, is the federal government's leading agency that's primarily in-charge of the creation of strong and sustainable communities with safe and affordable homes that are available for all.

In keeping with its agency mission and objectives, the Department of Housing and Urban Development has constituted the Sustainable Construction in Indian Country Small Grant Program.

The Sustainable Construction in Indian Country Small Grant Program is designed to solicit program proposals that contain one of more sets of "Lessons Learned" that will help inform the Native American communities, such as Indian Tribes, regarding the issues and concerns that need to be taken into consideration upon tackling sustainable construction projects in their community.

HUD encourages those Native American communities that have already successfully undertaken some sort of Sustainable Construction to share and utilize their knowledge and experience to inform other communities as they take on similar Sustainable Construction efforts in the main areas of moisture management, retrofit strategies, home performance verification and sustainable construction fundamentals.
