Grants to USA Indian tribes, Native villages and organizations, and museums to preserve Native American burial remains. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for the expenses associated with the packaging, transportation, contamination removal, reburial and/or storage of NAGPRA-related cultural items.
This program supports the following Secretary of the Interior Priorities:
The program supports the priorities listed above by assisting Indian Tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and museums in repatriation activities required under NAGPRA. Grant funds support activities including transportation, reburial, and training, all of which are required under the regulations. Through these activities, this grant program allows all recipients to expand lines of communication with Tribes, support tribal sovereignty, and reduce the administrative and regulatory burden imposed by the Act.
Grant funds must be used for repatriation under NAGPRA, which means the transfer of control of Native American human remains and/or cultural items to lineal descendants, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations. Repatriation includes disposition of culturally unidentifiable Native American human remains.
