Yes. Tribal governments that meet the distressed criteria (unemployment rate, poverty rate, and/or population decline) are eligible for DCTA. Tribal governments that meet the population size criteria (fewer than 40,000 people) and natural disaster criteria (in a county that experienced a Presidentially-declared disaster from 2015 onward) will receive a higher priority for receiving technical assistance under this program.
Please note that the funding for this program is limited and not every request from eligible applicants will be selected for technical assistance under the DCTA Program.
Visit the Distressed Cities Technical Assistance page on the HUD Exchange for more information about the DCTA Program.
