Seventeen tribal communities across Nevada, including the Fallon Paiute-Shoshone and Walker River Paiute tribes, will receive almost $27 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the development and operation of affordable housing.

Fallon will receive about $2.3 million while Walker River has been approved for more than $4.3 million.

“Helping Tribal communities across Nevada build more homes for working families is a top priority of mine, and I’m proud to help deliver this federal funding that will provide families with the support and resources they need to improve their quality of life,” said U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.

Cortez Masto said federal funding has already supported new tribal housing across Nevada, including new middle-class family homes in Owyhee and Washoe Valley in just the past year.

“The housing crisis in Nevada is impacting everyone in our state, especially tribal communities,” said fellow Democratic U.S. Sen. Jacky Rosen. “I’m proud to announce this funding for affordable housing development for tribes across Nevada. I’ll keep working to bring more federal investments to ensure that tribal communities have the resources they need.”

Cortez Masto secured $4.8 million in 2022 from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco to support Nevada affordable housing organizations including tribes, and to cut through red tape to make it easier to build affordable housing across the state.
