BARAGA (AP) - Two Native American tribes in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have received federal grants to support affordable housing programs.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said it awarded $1.2 million to the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and $600,000 to the Hannahville Indian Community.
The money was provided under a program designed to help American Indian families who don't have the financial resources to maintain good homes.
The grant amount are based on a formula that considers local needs and housing units managed by the tribe or another designated manager.
Indian communities can use the money for building affordable housing or related activities.
