Community Development Block Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages – An applicant must be eligible as an Indian tribe (or as a tribal organization), as required by 24 CFR 1003.5, by the application deadline date. Tribes eligible to receive ICDBG assistance must be listed in the following publication “Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs (http://www.bia.gov/cs/groups/xraca/documents/text/idc1-033010.pdf). Tribal organizations are permitted to submit ICDBG applications on behalf of eligible tribes if one or more eligible tribe(s) authorizes the organization to do so by tribal resolution. The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) or the Indian Health Service (IHS), must provide a letter that states that the tribal organization is eligible under Title I of the Indian Self Determination and Education Assistance Act. You must provide a copy of this letter to your Area ONAP by the application deadline unless your organization has already provided such a letter to the Area ONAP in previous years and the status of your tribal organization has not changed. HUD will not review an application submitted by a tribal organization on behalf of a specific tribe if the tribe itself submits an application for the same funding round. Due to the unique structure of tribal entities eligible to submit ICDBG applications in Alaska, and as only one ICDBG application may be submitted for each area within the jurisdiction of an entity eligible under 24 CFR 1003.5, a tribal organization that submits an application for activities in the jurisdiction of one or more eligible tribes or villages must include a concurring resolution from each such tribe or village authorizing the submission of the application. The hierarchy for funding priority continues to be the IRA Council, the Traditional Village Council, the ANCSA Village Corporation, and the ANCSA Regional Corporation. Any questions regarding eligibility determinations and related documentation requirements for entities in Alaska should be referred to the Alaska Area ONAP prior to the application deadline ue to the unique structure of tribal entities in Alaska you should contact the Alaska ONAP prior to the application due date if you plan to submit an application for an Alaska tribe or village. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement. Current Closing Date for Applications: June 14, 2016.
