Objectives: The purpose of the Social and Economic Development Strategies (SEDS) program is to promote economic and social self-sufficiency for American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native American Pacific Islanders from American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The SEDS program supports the principle that social and economic development are interrelated and essential for the development of thriving Native communities. The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) is interested in supporting community-driven projects designed to grow local economies, increase the capacity of tribal governments, strengthen families, preserve Native cultures, and increase self-sufficiency and community well-being. ANA may use the SEDS program for special initiatives to meet emerging needs in Native communities. Over the past five years, special SEDS initiatives included: Social and Economic Development Strategies for Alaska (SEDS-AK), Native Asset Building Initiative (NABI), Native Youth Initiative for Leadership, Empowerment, and Development (I-LEAD), and Sustainable Employment and Economic Development Strategies Initiative (SEEDS). ANA funding is meant for projects that identify direct, measurable outcomes which will be achieved within the proposed project period.
