http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/administration/grants/fundsavailAdditional Information of Eligibility:
Eligible applicants are Indian tribes or tribal organizations on behalf of Indian tribes.
An applicant must be eligible as an Indian tribe (or as a tribal organization), as required by 24 CFR 1003.5, by the application deadline date.
Tribal organizations are permitted to submit applications under 24 CFR 1003.5(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.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) or the Indian Health Service (IHS), as appropriate, must make a determination of such eligibility.
This determination must be provided to the Area ONAP by the application deadline.
If a tribe or tribal organization claims that it is a successor to an eligible entity, the Area ONAP must review the documentation to determine whether it is in fact the successor entity.
If your organization has already submitted this information to the Area ONAP you need not submit it again.
An application submitted by a tribal organization on behalf of a specific tribe will not be accepted if the tribe itself submits an application for the same funding round.
On January 29, 2014, the BIA published a Federal Register notice entitled, "Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs” (79 FR 4748).
This notice provides a listing of Indian Tribal Entities in Alaska found to be Indian tribes as the term is defined and used in 25 CFR Part 83.
Additionally, pursuant to Title I of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act, ANCSA Village Corporations and Regional Corporations are also considered tribes and therefore eligible applicants for the ICDBG program.
Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.Full Opportunity Web Address:http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/administration/grants/fundsavailContact:
