The Turtle Mountain Housing Authority has submitted application to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for funding under its Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Imminent Threat funds under the CARES Act. TMHA is seeking comment on the following project. Please provide comments to the TMHA by June 17, 2020.
1) Construction and site work of 8 modular rental units to alleviate overcrowding
2) Demolition of existing hazardous housing site to reduce the spread of COVID-19
The proposed project under this ICDBG-CARES Imminent Threat grant consists of two activities as TMHA responds to the current threat of COVID-19; and its existing need to remove the hazardous structures that once housed its tribal members by alleviating overcrowding and removing unsafe, unsanitary conditions that increase the likelihood of spreading the virus.
