HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research is managing a Congressionally mandated study of the housing needs of Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. The study is underway and the final report is expected in December 2014. The study will use several sources of information, including both primary and secondary data collection. For draft copies of the survey instruments, please see the list of documents under “data collection tools.” In addition to the primary data collection, the study will also include an in-depth analysis of Census data and administrative data from HUD and other federal agencies.
The goal of the study is to provide clear, credible, and consistent information to assess the housing conditions in Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities. The study is intended to inform policy and allow HUD to serve tribes more effectively.
If you’d like to receive updates about the study or participate with HUD and other interested parties in discussions on related issues, please sign up for our eList.
Work continues on incorporating feedback from the consultations into the project design. For an update on our progress, please visit the consultation page. The minutes, a report on the consultations, and our progress on making changes based on the consultations may be found on the consultation page. The household survey and the tribal/TDHE survey have been updated and the most recent versions may be found below. The study team incorporated the comments from consultations into the revisions.
Invitations to respond to web version of the tribal/TDHE survey were sent on May 3, 2013. We are still gathering email addresses for some tribes and TDHEs so if you haven't received an invitation yet and are on the list below, please get in touch and provide a current email address. If you have received an invitation, we hope that you will participate.
