The Department of Housing and Urban Development has published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Indian Community Development Block Grant program for FY2014 by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Southern Plains Office of Native American Programs (SPONAP); application deadline is July 29, 2014 for eligible applicants that include Indian Tribes or tribal organizations.
Eligible activities include new housing construction; housing rehabilitation, land acquisition to support new housing, home ownership assistance, public facilities and improvements, economic development and micro enterprise programs. For the SPONAP region, $13,343,479 has been allocated for the region with a maximum of $800,000.00 available for each requested project.

Accordingly, the citizen participation requirements of [HUD regulations] do not include concurrence by any person or group in making final determinations on the contents of the application. 24 CFR 1003.604(c)
