Native American Projects

USDA Rural Development places special emphasis on outreach and relationship building with the 29 Federally Recognized Native American Tribes in Washington State.  USDA Rural Development is making great strides on partnering with tribal communities in Washington State, both in terms of project implementation and community development.  Washington tribes benefit greatly from their partnership with USDA Rural Development, sharing with our Native American partners the same goal of improving the quality of life and the economic development for Native Americans.

Over $45.5 million has been awarded to Native American tribes in Washington State over the past five years for housing, community facilities, business, utilities, and broadband program related projects.  The partnerships which developed as a result of USDA Rural Development’s investment in these projects will provide lasting benefit for all tribes and rural communities USDA Rural Development assists in the future.
