Tribal Self-Governance Demonstration Program: Planning and Negotiation Cooperative Agreements and IHS Compacts

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

To make financial assistance awards to Indian tribes to enable them to assume programs, functions, services, and activities (PFSA) with respect to which Indian tribes or Indians are primary or significant beneficiaries, administered by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) through the Indian Health Service. Cooperative Agreements: In preparation for additional tribes each fiscal year, the IHS will make Planning Cooperative Agreements available. The Planning Cooperative Agreements allows a tribe to gather information to determine the current types and extent of PFSAs and funding levels available within its service areas and to plan for the types and extent of PFSAs and funding to be made available to the tribe under a compact. The IHS will also award Negotiation Cooperative Agreements which allow tribes to prepare to negotiate for compacting under Self-Governance. Compacts/Funding Agreements: Such assumptions will be by compact/funding agreements.
