Cortez Masto Applauds Federal Grant for Native American Housing Development

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) applauded the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for providing $437,652 in block grant interim funding under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) for low-income Native American housing development and operation in Gardnerville, Nevada. Gardnerville is home to the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California.

“I thank the Department of Housing and Urban Development for awarding necessary grant funds to the Washoe Housing Authority for developing and operating affordable housing for the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California community in Gardnerville,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “This funding is vital to ensure there is a reliable source of affordable housing for hardworking families throughout Nevada, and this HUD grant empowers the Washoe Housing Authority to do just that. I will continue fighting to secure grants like these to bring more affordable housing to the Silver State.”
