Message from the Executive Director, Dave Shaffer

I am pleased to announce that the two IHBG Competitive Grants applications that we submitted in August, 2019 were successful. On December 11th, AMIHA received an email from the Phoenix HUD office congratulating AMIHA on the awards.

One of the new housing grants is a multi-tribe grant for $5,000,000 that will produce 18 new homes (6 in La Jolla, 4 in Viejas, 3 in Pauma, 3 in Santa Rosa and 2 in Soboba). We plan to start construction on these units in late Spring/summer 2020.

The second grant was for $3,700,000 and will provide 12 new homes on the Torres-Martinez Reservation. We appreciated the opportunity to work with the TM staff on this application and we look forward to partnering with them throughout the project.

These two new grants, coupled with our recently awarded 5 FY 2018 ICDBG grants (13 homes) will provide the funding for the construction of 41 new homes during the next 18-24 months on 7 Reservations.

AMIHA is also in the process of preparing applications for the next round of ICDBG funding. Those applications will be submitted no later than February 3, 2020. We will be applying for 4 to 5 grants to fund an additional 15 homes.

AMIHA closes out 2019 with our most successful grant writing successes on our 50 year history. We look forward to providing new housing to 43 Native American families in the next 18 to 24 months.
