Ramah Final Settlement Agreement Notice

On September 17, 2015, the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior)  announced a $940 million proposed settlement with a nationwide class of Native American Tribes and tribal entities that, if approved by the federal district court, would resolve a 25-year-old legal dispute related to contract support costs for Tribal agencies. The proposed settlement would address claims that the United States contracted with Tribes to run programs but did not pay the full amounts required by law.
