The Red Cliff Tribe, in partnership with the Red Cliff Housing Authority, has launched a Tribal Housing Needs Assessment household survey taking place from December 2020 - February 2021. The survey will have two phases: all households on-reservation will receive a door hanger with an online survey code in December, and all off-reservation member households in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan will receive a mailer containing an online survey code in late January or February. This survey is an important data collection project designed to compile accurate demographic, employment and housing information about Red Cliff tribal members. The data collected during this survey will be used to enhance local programs and attract funding for housing and other community programs.

The data collected for this housing needs assessment will be used by the tribe for planning future housing developments, and likely replacing inaccurate federal data collected about tribal members to increase funding for tribal programs. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and you may stop taking the survey at any time. Participating in this survey will be taken as your consent to participate in the housing needs assessment.

To show our appreciation for your participation in the housing needs assessment, each household that completes the survey will receive a Gift Card to Legendary Waters Restaurant/Snack Bar upon completion of this survey. These households will also be entered to win weekly drawings of larger prizes valued at up to $200 each. The earlier you complete the survey, the more chances your household has to win! Off-reservation households that complete the survey will receive a gift certificate to the Red Cliff Fish Company!

The responses you provide will remain confidential. Your eligibility for services or assistance cannot and will not be impacted by your answers or by your refusal to participate. This research will only be reported as a combined total, and no one will have access to individual information. You do not have to provide your name, but doing so will help us announce raffle winners on Facebook Live. Any personally identifiable information will be stored separately from your survey response and will only be used to help us contact you if we have questions about your responses or need to contact you about receiving your incentive or raffle prize, if applicable.

Please respond to the following questions about you, members of your household, and your home, housing unit, or place of residence. The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. It is highly encouraged that one person living in each housing unit fills out the survey form on behalf of the entire household. Off-reservation household surveys should take 5 minutes to complete.

When entering numbers, please do not include commas, special characters, or decimal places. Round your response to the nearest whole number. (E.g., write ‘1000’ instead of ‘$1,000.00’)

Complete survey forms are essential to the success of this project. As such, we encourage you to answer every question. If you don't know the precise answer to any question, please give your best estimate.
