Past Funded TEDC Grant Projects

Last year, we gave $1 million to Tribes to support their energy business.

We use a competitive review system with well-defined criteria to select the most qualified projects for funding. Awards are based on the individual merit of the proposal, but we also aim to provide funding to a diverse range of Tribes living in various areas.

We often receive more proposals than can be funded by our annual budget, which is determined by Congress and varies on a year-to-year basis.

For FY2019, $4.6 million was requested and we provided $1 million in funding. View past funding levels.
