In late 2004, three federal agencies signed an agreement to combine resources for promoting homeownership and housing development in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Under the agreement, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, the Interior, and Housing and Urban Development will work together to provide housing opportunities and assistance to Native communities at all income levels. The agencies also agreed to share data, minimize duplication of effort and increase the efficiency of their project planning related to Native housing development.
