The need for reform in housing on Native American reservations is severe. It is certainly difficult for one to agree that the government has been prioritizing this issue, when one reads of the conditions of housing on the Native American reservations. The conditions are appalling, and there does not seem to be much of a sense of urgency on the side of the federal government to correct this issue that affects millions of Native Americans. Current legislation, passed on September 6, 2007 authorizes five years of housing assistance to assist in the needs of Native Americans. This bill is called the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Reauthorization Act of 2008. It essentially makes affordable housing more accessible to tribes.

Unformatted text preview: This bill also allows tribes to make their own decisions regarding the size of the grants needed to “acquire, rehabilitate, and construct housing” (Current Legislation, n.d.). This simplified the housing assistance system previously available to Native Americans. While this bill is a long ways away from permanently solving the crisis of housing available to Native Americans, it is certainly a step forward in the right direction.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
