Native American homeowners that are living in homes in need of major repairs can get assistance from the federal government. The resources of the Bureau of Indian Affairs Housing Improvement Program (HIP) eliminates substantially substandard housing for very low income eligible Native Americans living in approved tribal service areas. Grants allow for renovations, repairs, or additions to existing homes. The program will even build an entire house when there is no other available program to meet the need in the immediate or near future. It is restricted to use within reservations and approved tribal service areas. Individual members of Federally recognized Indian tribes in need of housing assistance who are unable to obtain assistance from any other source, and who meet the eligibility criteria of the HIP regulations can apply.
