This paper seeks to explore in what ways American Indians have (or have not) typically had access to IDA policy making and program development. In examining intergovernmental IDA policymaking processes, the authors surveyed 14 states with American Indian reservations and state IDA policies to assess whether American Indian communities in those states had access to IDA policymaking processes and whether the resultant state IDA policies include American Indian Tribal governments as eligible program fiduciary organizations and/or administrators. Additionally, the authors attempt to assess whether state-administered IDA programs are serving American Indian people.
