HUD invited applicants to submit proposals for funding to develop and disseminate one or more sets of “Lessons Learned” that will inform Native American communities of the issues to be considered when taking on sustainable construction efforts. HUD was looking for applications that can provide Native American communities with information from Native American communities that have undertaken some level of Sustainable Construction, and to use their experience to inform other communities as they consider undertaking similar activity. Grants could range from $50,000 to $125,000. Grants are awarded for up to a two-year period.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.525.
