All grant funds awarded in accordance with this NOFA are subject to the requirements of 24 CFR Part 100 3. 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- incomes as defined in 24 CFR 100 3. 4. The Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) in HUD's Office of Public and Indian Housing administers the program.

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:Area Benefit Activities;Limited Clientele Activities;Housing Activities; orJob Creation or Retention Activities.
2. Imminent Threat Grants.Imminent Threat (IT) means a problem which if unresolved or not addressed will have an immediate negative impact on public health or safety (24CFR § 100 3. 4) These grants are intended to alleviate or remove a threat to health or safety that requires an immediate solution as described at 24CFR part 1003,subpart E.
Due to the urgency and immediacy of the threat, projects funded must be completed within 12 months of the grant award, unless there is good cause for not being able to do so.
An application for IT funds is not required to be submitted by the deadline established in this NOFA.
IT applications are funded on a first-come first-served basis until the amount set aside for this purpose is exhausted.

www.HUD.GOVAdditional 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 14, 2015, the BIA published a Federal Register notice entitled, "Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs” (80 FR 1942).
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.Due to the unique structure of tribal entities eligible to submit ICDBG applications in Alaska, and as only one ICDBG application may be submitted for each area within the jurisdiction of an entity eligible under 24 CFR 1003.5, a tribal organization that submits an application for activities in the jurisdiction of one or more eligible tribes or villages must include a concurring resolution from each such tribe or village authorizing the submission of the application.
The hierarchy for funding priority continues to be the IRA Council, the Traditional Village Council, the ANCSA Village Corporation, and the ANCSA Regional Corporation.
Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.Full Opportunity Web Address:Contact: Agency Email Description: Agency Email:
