CONGRESS PASSES INDIAN VETERANS HOUSING LEGISLATION

On October 12th, the Indian Veterans Housing Opportunity Act was enacted into law. The legislation passed the Senate on September 28th and passed the House of Representatives in April.  This legislation will exclude disability payments to veterans and veterans payments to surviving spouses from the definition of “income” under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA).  As a result, more Indian veterans and their families will be eligible for homes built with NAHASDA funding.
