Title: Understanding Urban Indians' Interactions with ACF Programs and Services.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: As part of the “Understanding Urban Indians' Interactions with ACF Programs and Services” research study, telephone interviews will be conducted with up to 34 directors of Urban Indian Centers around the county, and site visits will be made to four urban areas with a high percentage of American Indians or Alaska Natives within the population: Phoenix, AZ; New York City, NY; Minneapolis, MN; and Anchorage, Alaska. Members of the research study team will utilize a telephone interview guide and field discussion guide to collect information from staff members at relevant programs and organizations (e.g., American Indian Organizations, social service agencies serving urban Indians) in these areas.

The goal of this information collection is to assess the challenges and context for family self-sufficiency for urban Indians and their interaction with services and programs offered by ACF. The information gathered will help to generate recommendations and action items for ACF in seeking to better understand and meet the needs of the urban Indian population.

Respondents: Urban Indian Center directors, non-Native service providers, Native service providers, and AI/AN residents.
