Office of Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ-9)
Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly announced $450 million in housing grant funding providing affordable housing assistance to eligible tribes to recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Sinema and Kelly secured these funds through bipartisan negotiations during the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act law.
“A healthy community requires safe, affordable housing. We secured critical funding to help tribal communities in Arizona house their members and recover from the coronavirus pandemic,” said Sinema.
“The on-going public health and economic crisis has exposed and deepened inequalities with housing in Arizona's tribal communities and put far too many families at risk of homelessness. These affordable housing grants will bring much-needed assistance to Arizona’s tribal communities seeking relief after a year of economic uncertainty. As we work to rebuild our economy, we must continue to ensure tribal communities have the resources to give families a clearer path to recovery,” said Kelly.
Ensuring tribal communities have access to affordable housing, infrastructure, and broadband continues to be a top priority for Sinema. The Sinema and Kelly-shaped American Rescue Plan Act provides $450 million for the Indian Housing Block Grants Program, which provides a range of affordable housing activities on Indian reservations and Indian areas. This program will provide affordable housing assistance to Tribal members.
