Policy for Government to Government Consultation with Federal Land Management Agencies and Federally Recognized Native American Tribal Governments

 

Consultation with Resource Agencies

Title 23 CFR part 450 requires that the MPO shall consult, as appropriate, with State and local agencies responsible for land use management, natural resources, environmental protection, conservation, and historic preservation.

Native American Tribal Government Consultation and Coordination

23 C.F.R. 450.316(c) requires that when the MPO includes Tribal lands, the MPO shall appropriately involve the Indian Tribal government(s) in the development of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Federal Transportation Improvement Program.

Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments (November 6, 2000), establishes regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in the development of Federal policies with tribal implications. The goals of this order are to strengthen government to government relationships with Indian tribes and to reduce the imposition of unfunded mandates upon local tribes.
