Tribal Self-Governance Program Negotiation Cooperative Agreement
The Tribal Self-Governance Program (TSGP) Negotiation Cooperative Agreement will award grants to help defray the costs of negotiating to participate in the Tribal Self-Governance Program. The TSGP gives tribes the authority to manage and tailor healthcare programs in a manner that best fits the needs of their communities.
The negotiations process has four major stages:
- Planning - must include legal and budgetary research and internal Tribal government planning and organizational preparation relating to the administration of healthcare programs
- Pre-negotiations - Tribal and federal negotiation teams develop draft compact, funding agreement, and funding tables
- Negotiations - Tribal and federal negotiation teams determine and agree upon the terms and provisions of the tribe’s compact and funding agreement
- Post-negotiations - Negotiating tribe becomes a Self-Governance Tribe and a participant in the TSGP
To be eligible for this opportunity, an applicant must:
- Be an Indian tribe, tribal organization, or inter-tribal consortium. Alaska Native Villages or Alaska Native Village Corporations are not eligible if they are located within an area served by an Alaska Native regional health entity. Those Alaska Tribes not represented by a Self-Governance Tribal consortium Funding Agreement (FA) within their area may still be considered eligible to participate in the TSGP.
- Demonstrate, for 3 fiscal years, financial stability and financial management capability, which is defined as no uncorrected significant and material audit exceptions.
