About SCinIC

The Sustainable Construction in Indian Country initiative is a congressionally mandated effort of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R), in partnership with the HUD Office of Native American Programs (ONAP). The initiative seeks to promote and support sustainable construction practices in Native communities, helping tribes to provide their members with healthier, more comfortable, and more resource-efficient homes.

This initiative includes several activities. HUD, other federal agencies, and key stakeholders are working to identify and overcome barriers to the adoption of sustainable construction practices in Indian Country. Participating tribes are receiving technical assistance to support their adoption of sustainable construction practices in residential construction or rehabilitation projects, and HUD is providing training on sustainable construction practices.
