We did not receive any applications for the Rehab and Replacement Program for the month of May. We have completed forty-five (45) projects.
The progress on the new construction project in Miami has now moved to the inside of the home. They are working on sheet rock, painting, trim work and cabinets. The project will be to construct a new 3-bedroom, 2-bath home in Miami, Oklahoma. Size approximately 1,400 square feet with concrete slab, 2 x 4 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 are waiting on responses for the environmental reviews for the next two projects on the waiting list. The Oklahoma Archeological Survey Office has requested an archeological field inspection for one of the projects. It is the second of the next two projects. That will take more time, but we still have one project ahead of it, so it will more than likely be complete before we need to start on it.
The revision to the Service Area for the NAHASDA Program was approved by the Business Committee at last month’s meeting. The Service Area has been revised to: all of Ottawa County and within fifty miles of the Quapaw Tribal Complex into Kansas and Missouri.
