NAHASDA (Native American Housing and Self-Determination Act): We did not receive any applications for the Rehabilitation and Replacement Program for the month of April. We have completed forty-two (42) projects.

We are working on a replacement project east of Quapaw. The project will be to demolish the existing home and construct a new two bedroom, 1 bath home in Quapaw. Size approximately 1,050 square feet with concrete slab, 2x4 exterior walls, vinyl siding, composition shingles, ½ inch sheetrock on walls, ½ inch high strength sheetrock on ceiling, R-36 insulation in attic. All work to meet HUD building requirements.

We finished the environmental review for a demo/replacement in Miami. The project will be to demolish the existing home and construct a new two bedroom, 1 bath home in Miami, Oklahoma. Size approximately 1,050 square feet with concrete slab, 2x4 exterior walls, vinyl siding, composition shingles, ½ inch sheetrock on walls, ½ inch high strength sheetrock on ceiling, R-36 insulation in attic. All work to meet HUD building requirements. However, the house has tested very high for lead-based paint and also has asbestos siding so the demo process will have to be bid out. This process will take a little longer. Still waiting for the Request for Release of Funds to be approved by HUD.

We have started an environmental review for a rehab project in Miami. The project will be to replace single pane wood windows with double pane vinyl windows. Bring electric up to state code and bring the H/A up to state code. Insulate ceiling in utility room, repair ceiling around H/A plenum in utility room and replace linoleum in utility room. All work to meet HUD requirements.
