In all, tribes across the country will be getting nearly $200 million in grants for new construction.

Officials say the money is expected to result in about 1,200 new housing units for low-income families living on reservations or in other Native American communities.

Housing authorities that serve Zuni Pueblo and the Jicarilla and Mescalero Apache tribes are among the recipients.
