Senator Collins Announces Maine Tribe to Receive $156,000 Housing Grant

 

U.S. Senator Susan Collins, the Chairman of the Housing Appropriations Subcommittee, announced that the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Pleasant Point Reservation will receive $156,000 through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program.

 “Indian Housing Block Grants provide critical support to tribal communities working to maintain and improve the availability of affordable housing on their lands,” said Senator Collins.  “I welcome HUD’s continued investment in Maine’s tribal communities, which supports projects that provide safe, affordable housing for members of Maine’s tribes, including the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Pleasant Point Reservation.” 

The IHBG program assists grant recipients with affordable housing activities in safe and healthy environments on Indian reservations, in Indian communities, and in Native Alaskan villages.
