Native American tribal communities face distressed, overcrowded housing


January 24, 2017

Dive Brief:

The housing stock in Native American tribal communities is more distressed and faces greater overcrowding compared to elsewhere in the U.S., according to Affordable Housing Finance, citing a set of recent reports from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

An additional 68,000 homes are needed to lessen overcrowding and replace dilapidated properties. The report noted that these groups have been constructing more housing, but recent funding has not kept pace with inflation and has therefore inhibited their ability to continue to build.
