Dear Tribal Leader Letter – Strengthening Tribal Consultation
On January 26, 2021, President Biden issued a Presidential Memorandum on Tribal Consultation and Strengthening Nation-to-Nation Relationships. The Memorandum affirms the Administration’s commitment to Tribal sovereignty and to fulfilling our Federal trust responsibility. The Memorandum also reaffirms the policy announced in Presidential Memorandum of November 5, 2009 (Tribal Consultation), which directed Federal agencies to develop and periodically revise their tribal consultation policies to ensure that Federal agencies consider Tribal feedback when developing policies that have Tribal implications, consistent with Executive Order 13175
In accordance with the January 26th Memorandum, HUD will develop a plan of actions that HUD will take to implement the policies and directives of Executive Order 13175. To do this, HUD is now seeking feedback from Tribal leaders on how we may strengthen Tribal consultation with our Tribal partners. Our goal is to ensure that we always engage in regular, meaningful, and robust consultation in the development of HUD policies that have Tribal implications.
If you have any recommendations or comments on how HUD could improve its Tribal consultation practices and policy, please submit your feedback via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. HUD will host a consultation session on February 25, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Continue reading for log-in details.
