Bureau of Trust Funds Administration

We manage the financial assets of American Indians held in trust by the Department of the Interior. We disburse more than $1 billion annually and have more than $8 billion under active day-to-day management and investment on behalf of Tribes and individuals.

In a reorganization effective October 1, 2020, the Bureau of Trust Funds Administration assumed the fiduciary functions previously managed by the Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians.
