This report addresses the current housing needs of Washington’s Native communities, including tribal and urban Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians, as well as various housing needs and barriers specific to certain regions of the state. Primary data was collected through surveys, focus groups, and key informant interviews. Existing data analyzed included the American Community Survey (ACS); Point-in-Time (PIT) Counts of homelessness; publicly available data on grant and funding recipients; planning documents at the county, city, and Tribal level; and annual Tribal housing planning documents. The report provides recommendations to local and state authorities to support the development of housing for Native Americans on and outside of tribal areas and addresses other systemic barriers that prevent or impede access to safe and sufficient housing by Native Americans.
