Leading Government-to-Government Relations

The Office of Tribal Relations (OTR) leads the Department’s vision to support and enhance government-to-government relations between USDA and the Federally recognized tribal governments.  OTR supports tribal interests by providing a one-stop approach for USDA, coordinating with other Federal agencies and the Administration to ensure access to those who deliver the resources to support the goals of the Tribe(s).  Further, OTR reviews regulations for potential tribal implications.
