In May 2017, Agriculture Secretary Perdue announced a reorganization of key agencies in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to make “USDA the most effective, efficient, and best managed department in the U.S. government.” Since the National Congress of American Indians passed a resolution requesting consultation on this reorganization, USDA continues seeking ways to enhance customer service and maximize efficiency by aligning offices and agencies with similar missions. USDA will be holding a consultation regarding both phases of this reorganization and its implications on Indian Country.
