Indian Education Formula Grants (Title VI)

The U.S. Department of Education programs funds the Indian Education Formula Grant (Title VI). It supports the efforts of school districts, Indian tribes and organizations, postsecondary institutions, and other groups to meet the unique educational and culturally related academic needs of American Indian and Alaska Native students. These efforts help them meet the same challenging state academic standards as all other students.
