U.S. Department of the Interior: Energy and Mineral Development Program
The Energy and Mineral Development Program (EMDP) will support projects that assess, evaluate, or otherwise promote the processing, use, or development of energy and mineral resources on Indian lands. Proposed projects must include resource inventories and assessments, feasibility studies, or other pre-construction studies that are necessary to promote the use and development of energy and mineral resources on Indian land.
The goal of the EMDP is to assist tribes by helping to expand tribal knowledge of energy and mineral resources on their lands and to bring tribal energy and mineral projects to the point where the economic benefits can be realized from the targeted resource in an economically efficient and environmentally sound manner.
Amount: Up to 35 awards will be made that range from $10,000-$2,500,000.
Eligibility: Federally recognized Native American tribal governments.
