HUD invited applicants to submit proposals for funding that encouraged the use of sustainable construction practices in Native American housing. Proposals were to take into account the multiple geographic, economic and cultural aspects of Native American residential design and construction. HUD sought applications in four broad areas: demonstration; technical assistance; curriculum development/training; and information dissemination related to sustainable construction in the Native Community. Activities performed under the Sustainable Construction in Indian Country Small Grant Program should document the impact of one or more innovative approaches to sustainable construction in Indian Country, identify a set of lessons learned, and then develop, deploy or distribute a tool highlighting those lessons. Grants could range from $50,000 to $100,000. Grants are awarded for up to a two-year period.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.525.
