The Tlingit Haida Regional Housing Authority contracted with Rain Coast Data to conduct a tribal housing needs assessment in the community of Wrangell. The survey asked tribal households to respond to 38 questions about their homes, housing preferences, household costs, and finances.
In the summer of 2016, 133 Wrangell tribal households responded to the survey. The highest priority housing need identified was to make current homes more energy efficient, followed by a general call for more affordable housing. There was nearly universal agreement that Wrangell needs an assisted living senior housing facility, with 98% of tribal households calling this a high level or medium level need. Wrangell tribal members also want more 2-3 bedroom homes. They said Wrangell needs more rental housing - but 94% of households also said they would prefer to own a home than to rent.
