We support the economic development of American Indian and Alaska Native communities by offering access to capital through grant opportunities and loan guarantees, and by providing technical assistance to tribes.
To maximize the economic benefits for tribes and tribal members, we work in partnership with other federal agencies like the Economic Development Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration.
The planning process helps tribes to determine their economic future.
Native American-owned businesses contribute over $33 billion to the U.S. economy every year.
Through training, education, and strategic advice, tribes can make the most of business opportunities.
