      $1.2 million in grants coming to Upper Michigan Native American tribes

      Two Native American tribes in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have received federal grants to support affordable housing programs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says it awarded $1.2 million to the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and $600,000 to the Hannahville Indian Community. The money was provided under a program designed to help American Indian families who don't have the financial resources to maintain good homes. Each grant's amount is based on a formula that considers local needs and housing units managed by the tribe or another designated manager. Indian communities can use the money for building affordable housing or related activities.
