The NAHASDA Community Grant Program
The Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) reorganized the system of housing assistance provided to Native Americans through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development by eliminating several separate programs of assistance and replacing them with the Indian Housing Block Grant.
In 2000, NAHASDA added Title VIII-Housing Assistance for Native Hawaiians. The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) receives the housing block grant funds and uses funds for improving lands to provide beneficiaries opportunities for homeownership and passes on the funds to community organizations, non-profit and for-profit organizations through the NAHASDA Community Grant Program for housing related activities. In fiscal year 2008-2009, $8.7 million in housing block grant funds are available to help DHHL fund affordable housing activities.
