The purpose of the ICDBG program is the development of viable Indian and Alaska Native communities, including the creation of decent housing, suitable living environments, and economic opportunities primarily for persons with low- and moderate-income as defined in 24 CFR 100 3. The ONAP in HUDï¿½s
Office of Public and Indian Housing administers the program.
Tribal organizations are permitted to submit applications under 24 CFR 100 3. 5(b) on behalf of eligible tribes when one or more eligible tribe(s) authorize the organization to do so under concurring resolutions.
The tribal organization must itself be eligible under Title I of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act.
Single Purpose Grants.
Projects funded by the ICDBG program must meet the primary objective, defined at 24 CFR 100 3. 2, to principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons.
Consistent with this objective, not less than 70 percent of the expenditures of each single-purpose grant shall be for activities that meet the regulatory criteria at 24 CFR 100 3. 208 for:
(a) Area Benefit Activities; (b) Limited Clientele Activities; (c) Housing Activities; and (d) Job Creation or Retention Activities.
ICDBG funds may be used to improve housing stock, provide community facilities, improve infrastructure, and expand job opportunities by supporting the economic development of the communities, especially by nonprofit tribal organizations or local development corporations.
ICDBG single-purpose grants are distributed as annual competitive grants, in response to this NOFA.
Imminent Threat Grants.
These grants are used to alleviate or remove threats to health and safety that require an immediate solution as described at 24 CFR Part 1003, subpart E.
Applicants do not have to submit a request for imminent threat funds by the deadline in this NOFA but must respond to NOFA requirements when applying.
