A. Overview of Information Collection

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 survey covered by this data collection is a household survey of Native Hawaiians living in Hawaii.

Respondents: Native Hawaiian heads of households currently resident in the state of Hawaii. The respondents for this survey will be drawn from the Applicant Wait List maintained by the state of Hawaii's Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL). The individuals on the DHHL list are eligible for the homestead benefit (that is, people who are at least 50% blood quantum Native Hawaiian) and are not currently direct recipients of federal housing assistance targeted to Native Hawaiians. The goal is 500 total completed interviews. In order to reach that goal, the target a will be sample 625 respondents. In-person household interviews will be conducted.Start Printed Page 75366
