Native American Affairs

For more than 50 years, Indian Tribes and organizations that support Native American communities have successfully leveraged national service resources to meet family and community.

CNCS is committed to supporting the Native American culture of service by addressing concerns such as:

  • Assistance to elders, children, and youth,
  • Education, health, and wellness,
  • Cultural preservation and job training,
  • Economic development for veterans and military families,
  • Traditional language preservation,
  • Traditional lands preservation,
  • Environmental stewardship; and
  • Disaster preparedness. 

To underscore our support of Native American culture and community concerns, CNCS designated a Strategic Advisor for Native American Affairs (Erin Dahlin, edahlin@cns.gov) who is the agency’s primary liaison to American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities, and the organizations and federal agencies who serve them. This senior advisory position works across all programs and support units to increase Native American participation in national and community service and to develop and enhance programming to address the unique needs of Native American communities.
