The Smith River Rancheria (SRR) will apply to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for funding in the amount of $605,000 under the ICDBG category of Land Acquisition to Support New Housing. One of the eligible activities in the category is to purchase existing homes.
The Tribe currently has a waiting list that consists of 45 tribal member families for the rental housing program. Our goal is to purchase existing homes and assist up to 6 families with this grant.
One of the requirements for the application is to provide notice of our intent to apply for the block grant and what the program will accomplish.
