For the United States to fulfill its treaty promises to tribal nations, tribal and federal policies must remain aligned to build strong, prosperous tribal communities by enhancing their economic growth and development opportunities. On the frontline of
the federal effort is the Department of the Interior’s Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development. The OIEED promotes tribal renewable and conventional energy and mineral resource development, and spurs economic and business development through assistance
to expand job and skills training opportunities and loan guarantees to facilitate and leverage access to private capital for business and economic development.
