OMB to Host Historic, First-Ever Tribal Consultation on President’s FY 2022 Budget Request
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has announced that it will host a Tribal consultation on the President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Budget. This is a historic announcement since OMB has never consulted with Tribal Nations on a Presidential Budget Request. Feedback and input received on the FY 2022 Budget will also help to provide guidance on the formulation of the President’s FY 2023 Budget.
Details on the upcoming Tribal consultation on the President’s FY 2022 Budget are as follows—
- Date/Time: Thursday, July 15, 2021 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm ET
- Dear Tribal Leader Letter

OMB is seeking Tribal Leader comments and recommendations on the following FY 2022 Budget items—
- Proposals to reclassify Contract Supports Costs, Indian Self Determination and Education Assistance Act Section 105(l) Lease costs, and enacted Indian Water Rights Settlements payments as mandatory beginning in FY 2023.
- Other feedback on the FY 2022 President’s Budget for programs and activities serving Tribal governments, organizations, and communities.
- Ensuring adequate and stable funding by considering options for a potential mandatory funding proposal for the Department of Health and Human Services’ Indian Health Service in future President’s Budgets.
- OMB will conduct another consultation on the President’s FY 2023 Budget, which will include this topic, in 2021, but this July session can start the process of seeking Tribal Leaders’ views on some of the major questions around developing such a proposal.
- How OMB can improve Tribal funding transparency, such as through changes to OMB’s annual Native American Funding Crosscut.
OMB will be accepting written comments until July 23, 2021, which can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
