ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Three New Mexico Native American communities will be sharing more than $2 million in federal housing grants.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is awarding grants to the Jicarilla Apache Housing Authority, the Ohkay Owingeh Housing Authority and the housing authority at Cochiti Pueblo.

With a need for more affordable housing in tribal communities, officials say most of this year’s project winners will use their grants to build homes or to rehabilitate dilapidated housing with an aim toward ending homelessness and relieving crowding.
