Service Population:

The department provides service to all Tribal members and gives information to companies / organizations that are interested in working with the tribe.
Services Offered:
  • The Planning Department has been assisting Tribal Members, Tribal Programs and other interested individuals / and organizations with information on grant resources,  private foundations, grant application processes and referrals to other important resources that are available.
  • Also assist various consultants assigned by Tribal Council


The program oversees the CRST Bingo Hall Project budget, activity has been limited, but plans to initiate the construction process will begin soon.


The biggest challenge the program has faced this past year has been budget cuts and having a shared budget with another program. Having a shared budget limits the program to provide the adequate resources that are needed to assist other programs, individuals, etc.


The Planning Department will continue to research economic opportunities to improve the quality of life, business and the tribe as a whole.
