OKLAHOMA CITY -

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced more than $77 million in grants to 35 Oklahoma tribes and tribal organizations to help provide affordable housing for tribal members.

The funding announced Thursday is provided by HUD's Indian Housing Block Grant Program.

Federal officials said in a news release that the grants may be used to build affordable housing, or for programs that contribute to housing availability and public safety.

The grants in Oklahoma range from nearly $48,000 to the Shawnee Tribe and just more than $50,000 to the Miami Tribe to nearly $20.3 million to the Cherokee Nation and $13.7 million to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.

A total of $563 million was awarded to 353 American Indian and Alaskan Native entities nationwide.
