The article reports that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has prepared regulations that would allow Indian tribes to sell bonds backed by future Indian housing grants in the U.S. The new bonding program is expected to resemble the agency's current program that allows public housing authorities to sell debt backed by future federal public housing capital grants. The agency is also creating regulations that would allow public funding recommendation for the program.
