WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Nick Langworthy is proud to announce a federal grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to the Seneca Nation of Indians for an Indian Housing Block Grant in the amount of $2,922,049 to help improve affordable housing.

“I was proud to support and deliver nearly $3 million to the Seneca Nation of Indians for an Indian Housing Block Grant,” said Congressman Langworthy. “The Seneca Nation has had a long and proud history in Western New York. This grant will help ensure affordable housing is available so members of the community can remain on their storied land.”

“High quality, affordable housing is a vital need for many Senecas on our Cattaraugus and Allegany territories,” said Seneca Nation President Rickey Armstrong, Sr. “The federal funds awarded through the Indian Housing Block Grant program will help the Seneca Nation continue to provide and fulfill this critically important need, allowing our people to remain at home on our lands and keeping our Seneca community vibrant and strong.”

The Office of Public and Indian Housing is allocating funding to eligible tribes under the IHBG Formula program to provide funding for affordable housing activities on Indian reservations, in Indian communities, and in Alaska Native villages. Tribes must submit an Indian Housing Plan to receive a grant.

Congressman Nick Langworthy represents the 23rd Congressional District of New York which includes Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben Counties and parts of Erie County. Visit
