National Center: Congress Should Fully Fund Indian Country Programs


WASHINGTON – “While the budget is merely a starting point in the federal appropriations process, we urge Congress to reject these drastic cuts to critical programs that help Native Americans across the country,” said Watchman. “From Community Development Block Grants tabbed specifically for tribes, to offices whose mission is to serve Indian Country, this budget axes offices that should see a funding increase and takes a hatchet to programs that shouldn’t even be chiseled. We appreciate the Committee for taking the time to hear our concerns, and encourage others in Indian Country to weigh in during the appropriations process.”
