Johnson-O'Malley (JOM)

The Johnson-O'Malley (JOM) Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior, through the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), to enter into contracts with Tribes, Tribal organizations, States, schools, and private non-sectarian organizations to address the education needs of Indian students. The BIE is proposing to update its JOM regulations to implement the JOM Act updates and address comments received in response to the proposed rule published on March 21, 2018 (83 FR 12301), and also put the regulations in a more reader-friendly format. The proposed rule was published in the Federal Register and is available here.
 
On June 17, 2019, the Assistant Secretary - Indian Affairs announced in a Tribal Leader letter of several Tribal consultations sessions to be held on the proposed rule.  For more information on JOM and the proposed changes, please visit: https://www.bie.edu/JOM/.  
 
On February 25, 2020, the final rule was published in the Federal Register is available here.
