Tribes to build housing with federal money

The Biden administration recently awarded nearly $100 million in competitive community development grants to tribal nations.

But only about $7.7 million is coming to local areas.

Housing authorities for the Tohono O’odham Nation and the White Mountain Apache Tribe plan to use their share of the purse to build a total of 42 homes for members with average and low incomes.

Matthew Casey has won Edward R. Murrow awards for hard news and sports reporting since he joined KJZZ as a senior field correspondent in 2015.
