Assessment of American Indian Needs and Programs, Final Report
A groundbreaking HUD study documents the severe housing needs of the American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) population and calls for an increase in public and private investment to alleviate these conditions. Assessment of American Indian Housing Needs and Programs: Final Report is the most comprehensive examination of the housing needs of this group ever performed. It finds that the AIAN population faces more frequent -- and often more severe -- housing problems than the non-Indian population. The housing needs and underlying socioeconomic conditions of the more than 2 million Native Americans vary greatly across the States, cities, and the 508 federally recognized Tribal Areas where American Indians and Alaska Natives live.
The intensity of AIAN housing needs and problems, particularly in Tribal Areas, is illustrated by the following:
- Fifteen percent of all AIAN households and 28 percent of AIAN households in Tribal Areas are either overcrowded or lack kitchen or plumbing facilities, as compared to the national average of 5 percent.
- Twenty-nine percent of all AIAN households and 44 percent in Tribal Areas have a housing affordability problem, as compared to the national average of 23 percent.
- If recent trends continue, the number of AIAN households in Tribal Areas that are overcrowded or have facility problems will grow by an estimated 3,700 per year in the 1990s.
