The allocation of funds to Tribal Councils for many INAC programs can be influenced by factors such as geographic location distance from major population centres and the local climatic condition (latitude). Tribal Councils are assigned remoteness and environmental indices. These factors can be used in calculating funding allocations. These indices may affect funding for the following programs: Facilities Operation and Maintenance (O&M); Education; Social Development; and Indian Government Support.
It should be emphasized that the intent of these indices is to provide a sense of geographic and economic reality in the funding process and as such must not be interpreted as a reflection of where a Tribal Council prefers to conduct its business.
