The Native American Programs Act requires ANA to provide, no less than every 3 years, "evaluation of projects . . . including evaluations that describe and measure the impact of such projects, their effectiveness in achieving stated goals, their impact on related programs, and their structure and mechanisms for delivery of services[.]"

The purposes of these evaluations are to:

  • Assess the activities and outcomes of ANA funding in Native communities in accordance with NAPA and the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993;
  • Record the successes and challenges of ANA grantees in order to improve the capacity of ANA grantees; and
  • Produce relevant data on Native American community-driven projects that is useful to Native American leaders, planners, tribal government agencies, and Native American service providers.

To satisfy such requirements, ANA conducts end-of-project evaluations that address two main questions: (1) to what extent did the project meet its established objectives and (2) how does the grantee describe the impact of its project on those intended to benefit within its community? This report addresses these questions.

On Thursday, July 18th the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) and the Administration for Native Americans (ANA), Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosted a Virtual Dialogue on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. This event focused on building the capacity of urban Indian organizations (UIOs) to contribute to local MMIW efforts.

This report summarizes key facts and figures from ANA's Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development in Fiscal Year 2017. The report includes informatin on:

  • Applications received vs. applications funded
  • Requested funding vs. granted
  • Project goal themes
  • Project activities
  • Grantee success stories
  • Results of each grantees' digital storytelling projects

Published by the U.S. Department of Education, Department of Health and Human Services, and Department of Interior, this report reflects efforts to identify the barriers, levers, and best practices that federal agencies can use to better support Native American languages. The information used to generate these recommendations include Tribal Consultation, listening sessions, dialogues at two Native American Languages Summits as well as information from research and other reports.



The ACF Tribal Consultation Policy supplements the HHS Tribal Consultation Policy and was created in consultation with tribal leaders and a Federal/Tribal Workgroup.
