As part of the “Understanding Urban Indians’ Interactions with ACF Programs and Services” research study, site visits will be conducted to three to five urban areas with a high percentage of Indians within the population, including Anchorage, Alaska. Members of the research study team will utilize a field discussion guide to collect information from staff members at relevant programs and organizations (e.g., American Indian Organizations, social service agencies serving urban Indians) in these areas.
The goal of this information collection is to assess the challenges and context for family self-sufficiency of urban Indians and their interactions with services and programs offered by ACF.
The information gathered will help to generate recommendations and action items for ACF in seeking to better understand and meet the needs of the urban Indian population.
