This document is an E-supplement to GAO-10-326. It presents the results of GAO's survey of tribal and tribally designated housing entity (TDHE) officials who were the recipients of Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination (NAHASDA) Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) funds in fiscal year 2008. In order to learn about these officials' experiences with and perspectives on the program, we conducted a Web-based survey of all recipients of these grants. Of the 351 tribal and TDHE grantees in the nation that used these funds, we obtained a 66 percent response rate. Respondents differed from nonrespondents by grant amount sizes. We obtained a higher percentage of responses from entities with larger grant amounts ($250,000 or more) compared to those with smaller grant amounts (less than $250,000). Respondents to the survey represented about 80 percent of the IHBG funds that were awarded in fiscal year 2008. In this e-supplement we present the survey results regarding responses related to how they used IHBG funds to address their affordable housing needs, other sources of funding they used in combination with the IHBG program, some of the experiences they had with leveraging, and program reporting issues.
