HUD SOLICITS COMMENTS ON NATIVE HOUSING NEEDS ASSESSMENT
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) yesterday invited public comments on a proposed assessment of Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian housing needs. HUD said this congressionally-mandated study will produce national level estimates of housing needs in tribal areas in the United States. The agency has not published a study on this population’s housing needs since 1996. Comments on the proposed data collection will be accepted through July 5.
