Continuity and Change: Demographic, Socioeconomic, and Housing Conditions of American Indians and Alaska Natives

This interim report is part of the National Assessment of Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian Housing Needs, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The project’s overarching purpose is to document the housing needs and conditions of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIANs) and Native Hawaiians. As a component of this broader project, this specific report examines trends in the circumstances (social, economic, and housing) of the AIAN population using secondary sources, predominantly the products of the U.S. Census Bureau. The final report of this study will merge rich field research data with the findings presented here. Though this report only offers a partial picture, it contains new information about how Native Americans are faring in the Nation today. The housing needs and conditions of Native Hawaiians will be described in a separate report. Download the report here: http://www.huduser.org/portal/publications/commdevl/housing_conditions.html


ONAP Technical Assistance & Training Announcement and Technical Assistance Request Form


2013 Mobile Home Initiative

FEMA has notified HUD/ ONAP that the Mobile Home Distribution Initiative has now ended indefinitely.  Therefore, HUD/ONAP will no longer be involved in the redistribution of FEMA’s excess mobile homes. HUD sends Thanks to the tribes that participated in this initiative and for helping to make it one of the most successful projects we have undertaken. If FEMA presents another opportunity like this we will once again notify tribal leadership and request new applications.


 ONAP Technical Assistance & Training Annoucement

May 2, 2013
The Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) is embarking on an innovative and responsive process of delivering technical assistance and training to tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE) grantees.  ONAP has awarded grants to the following eight organizations:  ICF International, the National Congress of American Indians, the National American Indian Housing Council, the Association of Alaska Housing Authorities, FirstPic, Econometrica, Pacific American Foundation, and Red Lake Reservation Housing Association.  The goal of this new method of delivery will provide a high level of instruction and cost-effective technical assistance and training to tribes and TDHEs in a more timely manner. 

As in the past years, tribes and TDHE’s will formally request training and technical assistance on a particular need through their respective ONAP Area Office. The ONAP Area Office will coordinate the requested need with one of the successful providers listed above.  Examples of such technical assistance and training include, but are not limited to, the following:
