In the fall of 2023, the Native CDFI Network and 11 other Native organizations joined together to develop companion economic policy briefs focused on concrete steps Congress and the Biden Administration can take to boost tribal economies and Native-owned businesses.

The focus areas of the briefs include access to capital, tax policy, energy development and land management, infrastructure, agriculture, support for small businesses, and international trade. Each brief details specific legislation, rules, interagency coordination, programs, and other steps needed to help Tribal Nations and Native-owned businesses enhance their economic growth.

These briefs have since been updated to reflect recent policy achievements/advancements as well as emerging Indian Country economic policy priorities.
