The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has prioritized developing regulations for the Section 184 Indian Housing Loan Guarantee Program (Section 184) and is seeking to consult with Tribal Nations and Tribal Leaders at the beginning of the regulation drafting process in accordance with the HUD Government-to-Government Consultation Policy. The Section 184 program is a home mortgage product specifically designed for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska villages, tribes, or tribally designated housing entities. Section 184 loans can be used, both on and off native lands, for new construction, rehabilitation, purchase of an existing home, or refinance.

To kick off this consultation, HUD will be holding a listening session at the National American Indian Housing Council (NAIHC) 2018 Legislative Conference, March 5-7.
