Sustainable Construction in Indian Country Small Grant Program will fund proposals that encourage the use of sustainable construction practices in Native American housing.
HUD seeks applications in four broad areas: demonstration, technical assistance, curriculum development/training, and information dissemination related to sustainable construction in the Native Community.
Grantees should document the impact of one or more innovative approaches to sustainable construction in Indian Country, identify a set of lessons learned, and then develop, deploy or distribute a tool highlighting those lessons. This tool should support learning without the need for instructors, facilitators or other external assistance. The training media may include, but are not limited to, a blog, DVD, publication, and video. Media of this type is expected to be maintained by the grantee until the end of the agreement.
Eligible applicants include:
- Tribes and tribal organizations
- Nonprofit organizations
- Think tanks
- Institutions of higher education accredited by a national or regional accrediting agency and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education
- Other entities that will sponsor a researcher, expert(s) or analyst(s)
Award Ceiling: $100,000
Award Floor: $50,000
