YPT moving ahead with pair of housing projects


With $2 million in federal grant money in hand, the Yerington Paiute Tribe is moving briskly forward with a pair of new housing projects. The tribe recently received $2 million of economic recovery funding as part of the Economic Recovery Act of 2009. "This money will continue our efforts to create jobs in Nevada, while building houses for the Yerington Pauite Tribe," said U.S. Senator Harry Reid in a statement announcing the grant.
