Overview

AAHA will host a two (2) day online training on Needs Analysis. Alaska Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE) must understand the housing needs in the communities to be able to fairly and effectively distribute NAHASDA funds to achieve housing goals of homeownership, rentals, repairs and housing services programs. To increase affordable, energy efficient housing within their regions, it is critical that these tribes and TDHEs have access to solid data to help make informed decisions on where to invest, what types of housing program to develop and which funding programs to target. Knowledge derived through housing needs analysis can also assist by achieving a compelling funding case for outside investors. Attendees will be given a tool box that can be used to conduct their own housing needs analysis and which addresses the four core components of a housing needs analysis:

  • Collect data and analyze housing needs
  • Work with multiple stakeholders, community partners and community members
  • Develop a menu of housing needs with strategies to meet needs.
  • Deliver action oriented recommendations for accomplishing goals and objectives.
