Representative Projects

Assessment of American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Housing Needs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has contracted with the Urban Institute and its partners, among them NORC at the University of Chicago, to conduct an assessment of housing needs in tribal areas in the United States.  More

Development of Planning Guidelines and Recommendations to Address Emergency Preparedness and Response Needs of Seasonal and Migrant Worker Populations.

Rural agricultural communities throughout the country have significant seasonal and migrant populations that typically are not included in population estimates.  Ensuring the health of these groups is clearly in the interest of rural communities as they seek to reduce the spread of infectious diseases and the burden of uncompensated hospital/clinic care. More

Evaluation of Tribal Health Professions Opportunities Grants (HPOG). Sponsored by the Administration for Children and Families, NORC is conducting a multi-method evaluation of the Tribal HPOG program, designed to train Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income tribal members for employment in health professions. More

Making Connections. The Making Connections survey, launched in ten poor urban communities, examines mobility, social capital, neighborhoods, resident participation, economic hardship, the availability and utilization of services, and child and adolescent well-being. More

Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Across the U.S. (REACH U.S.) Risk Factor Survey. The Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Across the U.S. (REACH U.S.) program is the cornerstone of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) efforts to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities. NORC conducts two projects related to CDC’s REACH U.S. program. NORC conducts an annual survey in 28 REACH U.S. grantee communities to provide quantitative data to measure progress toward eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities in several health priority areas. NORC also uses existing data and a literature review to assess the role of cultural tailoring and translation on grantees’ activities related to policy, system and environmental changes.  More
