Cortez Masto, Rosen Announce over $14 Million in HUD Grants for Affordable Housing in Native American Communities

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) released the following statement announcing $14,882,662 in grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to Native American communities across Nevada for the development and operation of affordable housing.

“When families have safe, affordable housing, our communities thrive,” said the Senators. “These grants will provide Native American communities across Nevada with vital resources to develop and maintain quality, affordable housing units. These critical investments will improve the quality of life for families throughout the Silver State. We’ll keep fighting to ensure Nevada’s tribes receive the full funding they deserve.”
