The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights Report 'Broken Promises: Continued Federal Funding Shortfall for Native Americans'

Program Description

On December 20, 2018, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights released its report, Broken Promises: Continuing Federal Funding Shortfall for Native Americans (www.usccr.gov/pubs/2018/12-20-Broken-Promises.pdf). The report revisits the Commission's 2003 report, A Quiet Crisis: Federal Funding and Unmet Needs in Indian Country (www.usccr.gov/pubs/na0703/na0204.pdf), which evaluated expenditures of federal agencies on Native American programs. The Broken Promises report is based on expert and public input, including from NCAI, and extensive research and analysis. The report found that funding for services critical to Native Americans was disproportionately lower than that for other populations.
