WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King announced that the Aroostook Band of Micmacs and the Penobscot Indian Nation have each received $600,000 through the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Indian Community Development Block Grant Program (ICDBG).

“Indian Community Development Block Grants provide important assistance to tribal communities working to maintain and improve safe living environments,” said Senators Collins and King in a joint statement. “We welcome these investments in Maine’s tribal communities, which will help provide affordable housing for members of Maine’s tribes.”

The ICDBG program helps grant recipients to obtain decent housing, a suitable living environment, and economic opportunities.
