Housing Financing in Indian Country: Spotlight on HUD's Title VI Program

This Community Developments Investments spotlights the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Title VI Loan Guarantee (Title VI) Program, which provides an additional source of funding for Indian tribes receiving federal Indian Housing Block Grants for affordable housing activities. This Investments also explains how two banks have used the Title VI program—and how other banks can as well—to provide housing financing in Indian Country.
