Tribal Consultation

1. PURPOSE

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) hereby establishes this policy requiring consultation and participation by and between Indian tribes on USDA policies and activities.

2. POLICY

It is in the public interest that USDA should, to the extent practicable and permitted by law, consult and coordinate with tribes on a government-to-government basis. Because tribes are affected by USDA policies, programs and actions, USDA should consult with tribes on matters that may affect their rights and interests in compliance with Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, prior to making a decision.
