Assistant Secretary Bostic sends letters to Tribes seeking participants«

November 10, 2011

Dr. Raphael Bostic, Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research, is sending letters to tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs) introducing the Sustainable Construction in Indian Country (SCinIC) initiative and seeking demonstration projects. Watch for yours! To provide additional information about the initiative, we’ve updated the SCinIC web page with a set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and a list of selection considerations. A sample letter is also given.

The selection considerations include a broad list of areas that HUD will review as it selects the demonstration projects to participate as best practice case studies and/or recipients of technical assistance. Demonstration projects will represent different types of projects at different stages of development from each of the six Office of Native American Program (ONAP) regions. Click here to read the selection considerations.

The FAQs include additional information about the initiative. If you’d like to know some benefits of sustainable construction practices, types of sustainable construction practices, how demonstration projects are selected, and who is eligible to apply, and more, click here to read the FAQs. These FAQs will be updated as needed.

Stay tuned for additional updates.
