Interested parties may request information by calling (928) 627-8863 and asking to speak with one of the Residential Specialists.
With the harsh desert climate in southern Arizona, home rehabilitation is an on-going necessity in order for CIHAD to maintain our stock of rental housing. While routine maintenance can be handled using NAHASDA funds, funds for major rehabilitation work must come from other sources.
In recent years, CIHAD has been able to fund its home rehabilitation through grants from the following agencies:
• HUD’s Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) – Fiscal Years 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009.
Using these funds, 50 of the oldest (and most in need) homes on the reservations have received major rehabilitation, including:
General: New roof shingles, new heat/air condition systems with new duct work throughout, new floors (tile and carpet) and baseboards, new exterior and interior doors, security screen doors, upgrade to 200 amp electrical main, new dual pane windows and exterior/interior paint.
Kitchen: New appliances, cabinets, countertops and plumbing.
Bathrooms: New vanities, showers, towel bars, medicine cabinets, exhaust fans, toilets and plumbing.
• USDA’s Housing Preservation Grant (HPG) – Fiscal Years 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.
Using these funds, CIHAD has been able to supplement the ICDBG funds received.
CIHAD plans to continue applying for a variety of federal and state grants as they become available to meet the rehabilitation needs.
