The Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) reorganized the system of housing assistance provided to Native Americans through the Department of Housing and Urban Development by eliminating several separate programs of assistance and replacing them with a block grant program. The two programs authorized for Indian tribes under NAHASDA are the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) which is a formula based grant program and Title VI Loan Guarantee which provides financing guarantees to Indian tribes for private market loans to develop affordable housing. Regulations are published at 24 CFR Part 1000. NAHASDA was amended in 2000 to add Title VIII-Housing Assistance for Native Hawaiians. The amendment to NAHASDA adds similar programs for Native Hawaiians who reside on Hawaiian Home Lands Regulations for implementing the Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant (NHHBG) program are published at 24 CFR Part 1006.
The Ione Band of Miwok Indians prepares an Indian Housing Plan (IHP) annually, following the guidelines set by 24 CFR Part 1000. The Housing Department utilizes this grant funding to provide assistance for Tribal Members who meet the Eligibility Guidelines of these programs. These funds provide valuable services to support home ownership, rental assistance, and home rehabilitation & repairs.

Funding obtained from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) provides the Tribe with additional resources to plan, develop, and construct the necessary infrastructure to ensure the tribes road safety. As the Tribe expands its land and prepares for future growth, these program funds continue to be essential in supporting the goals of the tribe.
