Federal grant goes to Pine Ridge project

Pierre, South Dakota (AP) October 2010

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is awarding a $996,000 grant to a project aimed at connecting housing with good jobs, quality schools and transportation on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The funding will go to the Thunder Valley Community Development Corp., which will work with the Oglala Sioux Tribe to develop a regional plan for sustainable development on the reservation.

The grant is part of a program that will support projects across the nation in developing regional plans that integrate affordable housing with neighboring retail and business development.

Officials say such planning will help make communities safer and allow businesses to grow and prosper.
