Seneca Nation Lands $1 Million HUD Housing Grant

IRVING – The Seneca Nation of Indians has been awarded almost $1 Million from a $12 million Healthy Homes Production grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“Protecting families and their children from safety hazards is a huge investment in the health of those who live in Native American communities,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson said. “These grants, announced today, shows HUD’s commitment to collaborate with tribal communities to ensure that their housing is healthy and safe.”
“Millions of families and children are seeing their hope for the future threatened by poor health, simply because of where they live,” Matt Ammon, director of HUD’s office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes said. “This round of funding includes awards to 13 tribes and tribal housing agencies, that are receiving grant awards for the first time.”
The Seneca Nation of Indians will repair 15 housing units for families with children.
