Despite improvements over the last two decades, Native Americans are more likely to live in homes that are crowded, physically inadequate, and unaffordable when compared to the nation as a whole. Many tribal communities lack a developed housing and lending market, leaving them almost totally dependent on federal funding to address housing need. Over the last 50 years, the federal government has sought to fulfil its obligation through a framework of self-determination, allowing tribes to develop and implement programs based on and conducive to local conditions and preferences. The quarterly speakers will mine data and illustrative best practices to offer a picture of how Native Americans are faring today.

Panelists:

  • Rodger M. Boyd, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Native American Programs, Moderator
  • Nancy M. Pindus, Senior Fellow, Urban Institute
  • Kevin Klingbeil, Managing Director, Big Water Consulting, Seattle
  • Carol Gore, President and CEO, Cook Inlet Housing Authority, Anchorage

We also invite you to participate in the event via social media by following @HUDUSERnews and @PDRevents. We'll be tagging our updates with #PDRUpdate.
