Tribal Consultation

On April 26, 2018, the CPUC adopted a Tribal Consultation Policy to better communicate and consult with California Indian Tribes. As Governor Brown stated in Executive Order B-10-11, "the State is committed to strengthening and sustaining effective government-to-government relationships between the State and the Tribes by identifying areas of mutual concern and working to develop partnerships and consensus."

Tribal Technical Assistance Grant Program Overview

California Tribes interested in technical assistance to pursue improved communications (for example, voice and broadband) to serve Tribal communities can apply for these grants to develop market studies, feasibility studies and business plans. The California Advanced Services Fund (CASF) has funds available to support Tribal broadband needs and increase access. Public Utilities Code section 281(b)(1)(A) authorizes the California Public Utilities Commission Communications Division Staff to approve applications for these grants for technical assistance on reservations, trust lands, and surrounding areas.
