Center for Indian Country Development

Since the mid-1990s, the Minneapolis Fed has worked with tribal communities in the Ninth District to explore solutions to the economic development issues they face. In 2015, in a shift to a nationwide focus on addressing financial needs and barriers in Indian Country, the Minneapolis Fed established Center for Indian Country Development (CICD). As a center of excellence within and resource for the Federal Reserve System, CICD serves as the System’s key connector and catalyst to Indian Country leaders and to policymakers at the federal, state, and tribal levels.
