“ACF has taken a critical step towards equity by awarding Indigenous communities more language funding than ever before on a non-competitive basis. The pandemic has sadly hit our Native communities hard, yet still we rise. Our languages are interwoven into the fabric of so much of what we do, from our songs to our traditional teachings, and they help us heal from times like this. I look forward to all the hard work, including developing new resources and documenting living languages, providing instruction, engaging in language revitalization planning, and intergenerational engagement, the new recipients will accomplish with these resources to continue to preserve such a vital part of our cultures,” said ANA’s Acting Commissioner Michelle Sauve. https://buff.ly/3l7QNVU

About ANA

In January 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared the War on Poverty, a collection of ideals that ultimately laid the foundation for ANA. President Johnson made a call to action, asking communities to prepare “long-range plans for the attack on poverty.” Eight months later, the Economic Opportunity Act was signed into law, and shortly thereafter the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) began awarding grants.

Early in the 1970s, the Office of Economic Opportunity was terminated, but many of its War on Poverty concepts became the basis for ANA. Established in 1974 through the Native American Programs Act (NAPA), this new agency also embraced the goal of Native American self-determination, first endorsed by President Johnson in 1968 and later by President Richard Nixon. ANA serves all Native American populations, including federally recognized tribes, American Indian and Alaska Native organizations, Native Hawaiian organizations and Native populations throughout the Pacific Basin (including American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands).
