This information collection would allow the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to collect from each federally recognized Tribe, a total count of their enrolled members.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is requesting an emergency, one-time collection to collect from each of the 574 federally recognized Tribes a total count of its enrolled members. This collection is necessary to equitably distribute funds appropriated under the American Rescue Plan, signed by President Biden on March 11, 2021. The BIA is seeking approval for this collection by March 30 in order to have time to collect the data and use the data in time to distribute funds by the deadlines established in the American Rescue Plan.

This information collection will allow the Indian Affairs and other Federal agencies to equitably distribute resources because Tribal enrollment count is a quantifiable representation of a Tribe’s population. Different population sizes generally require different levels of services and resources. BIA must collect this information immediately to ensure effective, accurate, and timely distribution of assistance to respond to the coronavirus pandemic in Indian Country, as provided in the American Rescue Plan which was recently signed into law. Specifically, enrollment data will be a primary data source to inform Indian Affairs’ allocation of $900 million in assistance to Tribal nations, as well as $20 billion to be distributed by the Department of the Treasury. Timely collection is especially critical as Treasury must allocate their funding within 60 days of enactment of the American Rescue Plan.
