The Tribal Interior Budget Council includes two elected tribal leaders from each of the 12 BIA Regions across the country. The executive branch develops its budget two years in advance, and the Council is currently developing recommendations for funding Indian programs for fiscal 2020. Beginning in the fall, tribal leaders in each BIA region meet to develop regional recommendations on budget priorities, which are consolidated into a single budget recommendation at a March national meeting. The Council meets throughout the year with representatives from the U.S. Department of the Interior to assist in the formulation of the Indian Affairs annual budget requests and performance plans. The Council works to secure funding at the levels necessary to strengthen tribal governmental capacity to serve their citizens and communities. The budget recommendation is used by Indian Affairs to help justify their budget request to the administration.
