Aroostook Band uses stimulus for home
The Aroostook Band of Micmas in Maine is taking advantage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

The tribe used $251,000 in stimulus funds to build a duplex home on the reservation. The project broke ground in September and should be ready for occupation by late November.

"This is going to give our tribal members who qualify a place to live," Richard Dyer, the tribe's housing director, told The Bangor Daily News. "It is a wonderful opportunity for these families. They will be living on tribal lands."
