Review of Federal Programs Administered by American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes

HHS provides Federal funds to American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes for various programs, including Head Start, Child Care and Development Block Grant, and Indian Self-Determination programs. There are approximately 6.6 million AI/ANs who are members of the 567 federally recognized tribes located in 36 States. OIG has identified as one of HHS's top management challenges ensuring the effective delivery of crucial services to AI/ANs and protecting funds from fraud, waste, and abuse. Prior OIG audits found that grantees did not always operate Federal programs, including Head Start, in accordance with Federal regulations and did not always manage and account for Federal funds in accordance with Federal requirements. We will audit tribal programs serving AI/AN communities to determine whether the tribes operated these programs and managed HHS funds in accordance with Federal requirements.
