Economic Development



Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, we are investing $500 million in improvements to American Indian and Alaska Native communities that will enhance their long-term economic development potential and promote near-term economic recovery. These investments will make a real difference by providing funds to fix schools, upgrade housing, build new roads and create new jobs.

Through the Indian Affairs Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development, we are providing assistance to tribal communities with managing and developing their renewable and non-renewable energy resources and helping them with stimulating job creation, workforce training and economic development.

Through the Indian Affairs Office of Facilities, Environmental and Cultural Resources Management, we are creating improved, safe learning environments for students in Bureau of Indian Education schools, building new homes, improving and repairing reservation roads and improving Bureau of Indian Affairs-funded detention facilities.
