1999- BIA Report on Tribal Priority Allocations

“As part of Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) funding, Tribal Priority Allocations (TPA) are the principal source of funds for tribal
governments and agency offices at the reservation level. According to their unique needs and circumstances, tribes may prioritize funding among eight general categories: government, human services, education, public safety, community development, resources management, trust services, and general administration. In 1997, Congress directed the BIA to examine options on other methods of distributing TPA funds based on identified tribal need. This report summarizes findings of a BIA/tribal workgroup on this issue.”
