Rep. Grijalva Announces $36 Million for Native Housing in AZ-07

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a record $1.1 billion in funding for the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program. More than $36 million will be awarded to tribes in the 7th District of Arizona, including the Tohono O’odham Nation, Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Cocopah Tribe, and Quechan Tribe.

The $1.1 billion in funding represents a 40-percent increase from last year and marks the largest ever funding investment in Indian housing. Funding can be used for affordable housing activities including new housing construction, rehabilitation, and housing services, and more. 

The Biden administration’s federal investment in Native housing programs and resources is historic. It will give chronically underfunded Tribal communities the ability to build safer, quality affordable housing,” said Rep. Grijalva. “Everyone deserves access to affordable housing no matter where they live, and I will continue to fight for policies in Congress that will strengthen and invest in the communities that need it most.”

  • Tohono O’odham Nation – $25,626,909
  • Pascua Yaqui Tribe – $7,517,574
  • Cocopah Tribe – $1,197,976
  • Quechan Tribe – $2,525,141
