Tribal Infrastructure

Infrastructure is critical to the public safety, economic growth, and overall health and well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native communities.

We work with other federal agencies to support tribes with their construction, improvement, repair, and maintenance projects.

One of the many barriers to economic development in tribal communities is the lack of physical infrastructure. 

We are committed to working with tribes to support and create new opportunities that can benefit their communities.

National Tribal Broadband Summit

Save the Date! September 17, 24 & October 1, 2021 | Virtual Summit and Register Today! Registration is open through September 30, 2021.

Today, more than ever before, access to reliable and affordable broadband service is critical to the health, wellbeing, and economic development of Tribal nations. The Biden Administration is making historic investments to broadband in rural and Tribal communities, and is committed to bringing affordable, reliable high-speed broadband to all Americans.  The National Tribal Broadband Summit is a unique opportunity for Tribal Leaders, representatives of Tribal organizations, representatives of schools and school districts serving under-connected Native students, tribal libraries, museums, and cultural programs, federal program managers, and policy-makers at multiple levels of government to come together and share their innovations in expanding broadband access and adoption for tribal communities.
