Native American Programs

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

To provide financial assistance, training and technical assistance, and research, demonstration and evaluation activities to public and private nonprofit organizations including Indian Tribes, urban Indian centers, Alaska Native villages, Native Hawaiian organizations, rural off-reservation groups, and Native American Pacific Island groups for the development and implementation of social and economic development strategies that promote self- sufficiency. These projects are expected to result in improved social and economic conditions of Native Americans within their communities and to increase the effectiveness of Indian Tribes and Native American organizations in meeting their economic and social goals. Additional competitive areas include: 1) Environmental Regulatory Enhancement, designed to assist Tribal and Alaska Village governments in developing environmental programs responsive to tribal needs; and 2) Native Languages Preservation and Enhancement, a program to assist Native American tribes and communities in ensuring the survival and continued vitality of their languages.
