“When families have safe, affordable housing, our communities thrive,” said the Senators. “These grants will provide Native American communities across Nevada with vital resources to develop and maintain quality, affordable housing units. These critical investments will improve the quality of life for families throughout the Silver State. We’ll keep fighting to ensure Nevada’s tribes receive the full funding they deserve.”
