Tribal Housing

Safe and stable homes are fundamental to the well-being of American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians and the resiliency of their communities and cultures. Yet, systemic barriers underlie housing disparities, which include high rates of homelessness, housing instability, and inadequate or unsafe housing among Native peoples. People with disabilities and older adults, including individuals experiencing homelessness, often have the greatest need for accessible, affordable housing and voluntary community services.

Partnerships between tribal housing authorities, housing programs, homeless service systems, and  Older American Act Title VI Native American Aging Programs (Title VI programs) are finding ways to provide culturally relevant housing options that are affordable, accessible and provide links to services.
