Who We Serve

We provide technical assistance, training, and funding to assist tribes and tribal members with starting and sustaining their businesses, and bringing their innovative ideas to the marketplace.

Through our efforts, we support tribes in accessing knowledge and resources to address the limited economic opportunities that exist in many American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
