Grants to USA Native American Tribes and housing entities for housing programs to benefit eligible veterans. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to finalize. Funding is intended to provide housing assistance and supportive services to Native American Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

HUD is using this opportunity to award new Tribal HUD-VASH grants to address both the concerns identified in the study and to provide housing assistance and supportive services to Native American Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  Since the 2017 Appropriations Act also requires HUD to coordinate with the VA when awarding new grants under the program, the Departments met throughout the planning process and jointly established the rating factors and requirements detailed in this NOFA. These were driven based on HUD and VA's experiences to-date, including assessing the demonstration program's achievements, areas for improvement, and feedback from both HUD-Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) and VA case managers. As such, HUD and VA remain committed to providing critical case management services and technical assistance, both for existing grantees and the additional Indian Tribes and TDHEs based on this competition.
