Series: Housing Issues, Laws and Programs
BISAC: SOC021000

Native Americans living in tribal areas experience some of the poorest housing conditions in the United States. Native Americans in tribal areas are several times more likely to live in housing that is physically substandard or overcrowded than the U.S. population as a whole. They are also more likely to live in poverty than the general population, further contributing to housing problems.

In addition, a number of issues, such as the legal status of tribal land, pose unique barriers to housing for many people living in tribal areas. This book discusses federal assistance, challenges faced and efforts made to address these challenges for Native American housing. (Imprint: Nova)
