Updated August 18, 2016

The following table is the register of documented petitions described in 25 CFR 83.23(b). When resources become available to evaluate a new petition, OFA will begin its review of the petition on the top of this register. When OFA receives a new submission and finds that it meets the requirements for a documented petition, OFA will place the petition at the bottom of this register.
