2019- TSGAC Letter: Comments and Recommendations for Funding Indian Self-Determination Education and Assistance Act 105(l) Leases

TSGAC expressed concern to IHS regarding its practice of reprogramming funds from other IHS accounts or funding intended for inflation costs or other purposes. TSGAC offered the following recommendations:

(1) Request supplemental appropriations for FY 2019 105(l) leases.

(2) Find other sources of funding for FY 2019 105(l) leases.

(3) Convene a technical workgroup to create a methodology to estimate 105(l) funding needs.

(4) Request a separate and indefinite appropriation specifically for 105(l) Leases.
