HUD Tribal Consultation
HUD acknowledges the sovereignty of federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes, and is committed to operate within a government-to-government relationship to allow tribes the maximum amount of responsibility for administering their housing programs. To accomplish this objective, HUD consults with American Indian and Alaska Native governments, TDHEs and national Indian and Native Hawaiian organizations when developing legislation, regulations and policies that affect tribes.

On April 29, 1994, a Presidential Memorandum was issued reaffirming the federal government's commitment to operate within a government-to-government relationship with federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes, and to advance self-governance for such tribes. In November 2000, Executive Order 13175 was issued. The order sets forth guidelines for all federal agencies to: (1) Establish regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with Indian tribal officials in the development of federal policies that have tribal implications; (2) Strengthen the United States government-to-government relationships with Indian tribes; and (3) Reduce the imposition of unfunded mandates upon Indian tribes.
