Indian Projects Funded by EDA, August 26, 1965-September 30, 1977.
Economic Development Administration (DOC), Washington, DC.
Since 1967 the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has carried out an Indian program that emphasized economic development of Indian reservations and trust lands. In the past 12 years Indian tribes in 32 states have received community and industrial development grants to assist them in developing a viable economic base on their lands. Tribes in Arizona have received the greatest amount of assistance with $113,263,174 awarded in the period from August 26, 1965 to September 30, 1977. New Mexico tribal groups received $37,927,795, and Indians in Washington received $37,467,572. Indians in Massachusetts received the smallest amount of assistance: $146,050. EDA grants were made for such projects as planning and impact studies, water and sewer systems, tourism facilities, industrial parks, and community facilities such as fire stations, community centers, and health centers. Assistance was also given to national Indian groups for conferences, training programs, studies, and other types of activities, including those related to industrial development. In addition to listing the total Indian project funding by state for the 12 year period, this document itemizes the amounts and kinds of assistance given to specific tribes in each state. It also lists the amounts and kinds of aid awarded to the national level projects. (DS)
