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:

  1. Planning - Includes legal and budgetary research and internal Tribal government planning and organizational preparation relating to the administration of healthcare programs
  2. Pre-negotiations - Tribal and federal negotiation teams review and discuss issues identified during the planning phase
  3. Negotiations - Tribal and federal negotiation teams determine and agree upon the terms and provisions of the tribe's compact and funding agreement
  4. 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 a tribe, tribal organization, or inter-tribal consortium
  • Request participation in self-governance by resolution or other official action by the governing body of each Indian tribe to be served.
  • Demonstrate, for 3 fiscal years, financial stability and financial management capability

Tribes prohibited from contracting pursuant to the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (ISDEAA) are not eligible.
