Navajo Nation receives $55 million grant to help homeowners
The Navajo Nation has received a $55 million grant to provide help to Navajo homeowners. The assistance includes mortgage payments and home repairs.
Navajo Nation President Buu Nygren said 901 Navajo homeowners should qualify for the assistance.
The funding comes through the American Rescue Plan Act, which provides nearly $10 billion to support homeowners facing hardships attributed to COVID-19.
In a statement to the media, the Navajo Nation said this program is also open to higher income Navajo homeowners and can be used by tribal members in the Four Corners states. The funding must be used within three years.
