The mission of the Branch of Tribal Climate Resilience is to enable climate preparedness and resilience across all Indian Affairs programs and for all Federally-recognized Tribal Nations and Alaska Native villages through technical and financial assistance, access to scientific resources and educational opportunities.
Who We Serve
The Branch of Tribal Climate Resilience (TCR) partners with Tribal Nations and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) agencies to incorporate climate considerations into their programs and policies by providing funding, training, technical assistance and organizational support.
Tribes can leverage TCR programs to further support their existing operations, program planning, project design, as well as Indigenous and Traditional Knowledges into their management and protection of Trust resources and Tribal economies.
