    The centerpiece of the assessment of American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) housing conditions is the first ever national survey of American Indian and Alaska Native households in tribal areas. This survey sampled 1,340 AIAN households from 38 tribal areas and achieved a response rate of 60 percent. The survey offers information not available in existing census data sources, including estimates of electrical and heating problems, physical conditions problems, and the extent of "doubling up" among AIAN households in tribal areas. The report contextualizes data from the household survey with information on demographic, social, and economic conditions and regional and historical comparisons based on the 2000 and 2010 decennial censuses and the 2006-10 American Community Survey (ACS). Analyses show that housing conditions are substantially worse among AIAN households than among all U.S. households, with overcrowding in tribal areas being especially severe. Findings from a survey of 110 tribally designated housing entities, site visits to 22 tribal areas, and data on housing...

Findings from a survey of 110 tribally designated housing entities, site visits to 22 tribal areas, and data on housing production before and after enactment of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self- Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) show that tribes have produced and maintained low- income housing much more effectively since the passage of NAHASDA. Nominal dollars for the Indian Housing Block Grant have not been increased since 1996, however, leading to a substantial decrease in buying power. Limited funding is a key constraint for many tribes who could increase their rate of housing production if they had more funding. (Author abstract)

    The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program is administered by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. In September 2015, ACF awarded a second round of HPOG grants to 32 organizations, including five tribal organizations. These grant awards support demonstration projects that provide eligible individuals with the opportunity to obtain education and training for occupations in the health care field that pay well and are expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand.

    NORC at the University of Chicago is leading a comprehensive implementation and outcome evaluation of the five Tribal HPOG 2.0 grantees. The evaluation examines program implementation and participant outcomes at both the individual and systems level in a manner that is grounded in a community-based participatory research approach. The Tribal HPOG 2.0 evaluation design is descriptive; as such, the results will not attribute causality between HPOG programs and outcomes. (Author abstract)

    This report summarizes:

    • the findings from a review of the literature on tribal research oversight,
    • approaches to conducting evaluations in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, and
    • strategies and models used to implement programs similar to the Tribal Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) 2.0 Program.

    Additionally, this report describes how the findings from the literature review have informed the Tribal HPOG 2.0 evaluation design. The Tribal HPOG 2.0 program supports demonstration projects that provide TANF recipients and other low-income individuals with the opportunity to obtain education and training for occupations in the healthcare field that pay well and are expected to either experience labor shortages or be in high demand. NORC at the University of Chicago is leading a comprehensive implementation and outcome evaluation of the Tribal HPOG 2.0 Program. (Author abstract)
