Program descriptions include state agencies (health, welfare, housing, community development agriculture, criminal justice, and education), federal programs (Bureau of Indian Affairs, Indian Health Service, Housing and Urban Development), and Indian organizations (California Rural Indian Health Board, Inc., Inter-Tribal Council of California, California Tribal Chairmen's Association, and California Indian Education Association).
