ANA promotes self-sufficiency for Native Americans by providing discretionary grant funding for community based projects, and training and technical assistance to eligible tribes and native organizations.

Social and Economic Development (SEDS)
The SEDS program supports the principle that social and economic development are inter-related and essential for the development of healthy, self-sufficient Native American communities. ANA emphasizes social and economic development projects that promote the establishment and maintenance of diversified local economies, the preservation of Native American cultures, and programs and services that safeguard the health and well-being of Native Americans.
Sustainable Employment and Economic Development Strategies (SEEDS)
The Sustainable Employment and Economic Development Strategies Initiative is designed to reduce unemployment and stimulate economies in Native American communities. The purpose is to foster economic development through the creation of small businesses and sustainable job growth. Funding focuses on projects that target more immediate job growth or business development.
Native Asset Building Initiative (NABI)
The Native Asset Building Initiative is a joint funding opportunity, offered through a partnership between OCS’s AFI program and ANA’s Social and Economic Development Strategies (SEDS) program under the auspices of the ACF ASSET Initiative, an agency-wide effort to bring financial literacy, IDAs, and related services to more families across the nation, and to create interoperability across ACF program offices. The purpose of this initiative is to increase access to and awareness of asset building opportunities in Native American communities. Asset building is an anti-poverty strategy that helps low-income people move towards greater self-sufficiency by accumulating savings and purchasing long-term assets.
Native Languages Preservation and Maintenance
The Native Language Preservation and Maintenance program supports the revitalization of Native American languages to ensure the survival and continuing vitality of these languages and the cultures of native peoples for future generations.
Esther Martinez Immersion
The Esther Martinez Immersion supports the revitalization of Native American languages to ensure the survival and continuing vitality of these languages and the culture of native peoples for future generations. Immersion and Restoration grant funding is awarded in accordance with the Ester Martinez Native American Languages Preservation Act of 2006 to Native American language nests, survival schools, and restoration programs for teachers of Native American languages; and, develops instructional materials for the programs.
Environmental Regulatory Enhancement
In 1990, NAPA was amended to strengthen tribal government capacity to identify, plan, develop, and implement environmental programs that will bolster regulatory efforts in a manner that is consistent with a Tribe’s cultural preservation and natural resource management priorities. Ultimate success in this program will be realized when the applicant’s desired level of environmental quality is acquired and maintained.
Alaska SEDS-AK
The Alaska SEDS Program is focused on community-driven projects designed to grow local economies, strengthen Alaskan Native families, including the preservation of Alaskan Native American cultures, and decrease the high rate of current challenges caused by the lack of community-based businesses, and social and economic infrastructure in Alaskan Native communities.
Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (I-LEAD)
The purpose of Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (Native Youth I-LEAD) is to support local community projects that foster Native youth resiliency, and to empower Native youth across four broad domains of activity: (1) Native youth leading (leadership development), (2) Native youth connection (building positive identity, community connection, and social-emotional health), (3) Native youth learning (educational success), and (4) Native youth working (workforce readiness). These domains, combined with promotion of the role of supportive adults, form a framework for inter-related strategies that support capacity building, inter-generational engagement and understandings, and the empowerment and self-development of Native youth.
Native Language Community Coordination Demonstration Project (NLCC)
The vision of the ANA’s Native Languages Preservation and Maintenance Program is Native language fluency and community-wide revitalization of Native American languages. The Native Languages Community Coordination Demonstration Project (NLCC) will further this vision by establishing cooperative agreements with site-based educational programs to demonstrate evidence based strategies that integrate Native language and educational services within a specific community. The demonstration project emphasizes a community’s potential to integrate stand-alone language programs into a broader educational system that can offer a continuum of Native language instruction from preschool through post-secondary education.
