Grant Program To Assess, Evaluate and Promote Development of Tribal Energy and Mineral Resources




Tribal Energy and Environmental Information Clearinghouse

The Energy and Mineral Development Program (EMDP) provides funding to tribes with the mission goal of assessing, evaluating, and promoting energy and mineral resources on Indian trust lands for the economic benefit of Indian mineral owners. To achieve these goals, the Department of the Interior's Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development (IEED), through its Division of Energy and Mineral Development (DEMD) office, is soliciting proposals from tribes. The Department will use a competitive evaluation process to select several proposed projects to receive an award.
