Cortez Masto, Rosen Secure Critical Support for Housing in Nevada Tribal Communities

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), member of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) announced that 17 Tribal communities across the state of Nevada will receive a total of $26,722,017 in grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the development and operation of affordable housing.

“Helping Tribal communities across Nevada build more homes for working families is a top priority of mine, and I’m proud to help deliver this federal funding that will provide families with the support and resources they need to improve their quality of life,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “I’ll always work to deliver for our Native communities.”

“The housing crisis in Nevada is impacting everyone in our state, especially Tribal communities,” said Senator Rosen. “I’m proud to announce this funding for affordable housing development for Tribes across Nevada. I’ll keep working to bring more federal investments to ensure that Tribal communities have the resources they need.”

Federal funding has already supported new Tribal housing across Nevada, including new middle-class family homes in Owyhee and Washoe Valley in just the past year. This specific funding from the Indian Housing Block Grant program will allow the Silver State to continue to invest in Tribal communities’ building and rehabilitating affordable housing. The awards will be distributed as follows:

  • $3,723,167 to the Duck Valley Shoshone-Paiute Tribes
  • $715,977 to the Duckwater Shoshone Tribe
  • $1,124,207 to the Ely Shoshone Tribe
  • $2,531,700 to the Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Tribe
  • $1,270,603 to the Fort McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribes
  • $110,290 to the Las Vegas Tribe of Paiute Indians
  • $338,971 to the Lovelock Paiute Tribe
  • $557,880 to the Moapa Band of Paiute Indians
  • $3,145,901 to the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe
  • $2,302,536 to the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony
  • $110,290 to the Summit Lake Paiute Tribe
  • $1,723,941 to the Te-Moak Tribe of Western Shoshone Indians
  • $4,317,185 to the Walker River Paiute Tribe

  • $110,290 to the Winnemucca Indian Colony
  • $1,484,003 to the Yerington Paiute Tribe
  • $486,533 to the Yomba Shoshone Tribe

Senators Cortez Masto and Rosen have been leaders in the fight to lower housing costs and support Tribal communities. Last year, Cortez Masto secured $4.8 million from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco to support Nevada affordable housing organizations including Tribes, and cut through red tape to make it easier to build affordable housing across the state. She is leading legislation to significantly increase the amount of federal funds available for the HOME Investment Partnership Program to build more affordable housing across the country. Senator Rosen recently introduced the Housing Oversight and Mitigating Exploitation (HOME) Act to crack down on housing price gouging by corporate investors who are driving up home prices by buying up housing stock.
