Eligible IHBG recipients are Federally-recognized Indian tribes or their tribally designated housing entity (TDHE), and a limited number of state-recognized tribes who were funded under the Indian Housing Program authorized by the United States Housing Act of 1937 (USHA). These funds are managed either by the tribal housing departments or the TDHE.
