2015 Welfare Assistance Funding Distribution Methodology Announcement

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) requests that all Tribal and BIA social service programs that utilize Welfare Assistance and Social Services Administrative funds from the BIA, submit a BIA Financial Assistance & Social Service Report (FASSR). The report provides vital information that is used by the BIA to justify funding levels, make program and policy decisions, and educate important entities such as Congress, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and the public.

The 2015 FASSR must be submitted to the appropriate office by December 4, 2015 for Fiscal Year Tribes or February 1, 2016 for Calendar Year Tribes.
