NVN is in the process of drafting an application for an Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) for funding to support the development of a truss manufacturing operation to be used for local housing construction in the Kuskokwim region. This operation is being proposed as a partnership with AVCP and TKC.
In accordance with the citizen participation requirements of 24 CFR 1003.604, the tribe must state that the views and comments from the entire tribal community members about the possible use of ICDBG funds were gathered and considered prior to the submission of the application.
The ICDBG Program provides eligible grantees with direct grants for use in developing viable Indian and Alaska Native Communities, including decent housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities, primarily for low and moderate income persons.
