On July 20, 2016 from 3 – 5pm Eastern Time, the Urban Institute will present an overview of findings from the congressionally mandated assessment of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian housing needs. Tribal leaders, tribal housing officials, and tribal institutional review boards are invited to attend the presentation through videoconference at HUD offices or via teleconference (VTC) lines. The presentation will focus on findings from census data, findings from the first nationally representative survey of households in tribal areas, and findings from a survey of officials of tribally designated housing entities. The draft report of findings will be distributed to tribal leaders about two weeks before the presentation and there will be an open comment period through August 23, 2016.
In the SWONAP region, the VTC will take place at two locations:
Phoenix, AZ HUD Office – One North Central Ave., Suite 600, Phoenix, AZ
Albuquerque, NM HUD Office – 500 Gold Ave, SW, 7th Floor, Ste. 7301, Albuquerque, NM 87103-0906
A conference line will be available for those who opt not to come to either HUD office. For more information, contact Elizabeth Rudd at Elizabeth.C.Rudd@hud.gov .
