Title of Information Collection: Assessment of Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Housing Needs.

OMB Approval Number: 2528–0288.

Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Form Number: None.

Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Department is conducting this study under contract with The Urban Institute and its subcontractors, NORC, Econometrica and SSI. The project is a housing needs assessment that will produce national level estimates of housing needs in tribal areas in the United States. HUD provides funding though several programs to Native American and Alaskan Native populations, most notably through the Indian Housing Block Grant. The level of housing need is of particular interest to HUD and the Congress has mandated this study. HUD has not published a study on housing needs, in general, for this population since 1996. The surveys covered by this data collection include a household survey of native Hawaiians, living in Hawaii, served by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands.

Respondents (i.e. affected public):

  • Native Hawaiian households on the DHHL waiting list: 500 surveys total, 10% by telephone, the remainder in-person.
  • Native Hawaiian households residing in the home lands (potentially): 500 surveys total, 10% by telephone, the remainder in-person.

Estimation of the Total Number of Hours Needed To Prepare the Information Collection Including Number of Respondents, Frequency of Response, and Hours of Response:
