ARMP-IRMP Planning Portal
A Toolkit for Tribal Resource Management Plans
Welcome to the ARMP-IRMP Data Portal
This resource was developed by the Native Lands Advocacy Project in partnership with the Intertribal Agriculture Council and the Indian Land Tenure Foundation to assist Tribes in the development of Agriculture Resource Management Plans (ARMPs) and Integrated Resources Management Plans (IRMPs) both integral steps to asserting sovereignty your lands.
About the Portal
We know that enforcing your tribal sovereignty can be difficult, especially when it comes to finding the resources necessary to plan for the future of your land. In 1993, the American Indian Agricultural Resource Management Act (AIARMA) enabled tribes to regain some control over their lands by completing an Agricultural Resource Management Plan (ARMP). This statutory document allows tribes to fully control the directions of the decisions taken by the BIA in terms of agricultural and general land planning for a period of 10 years. But to this day, not many tribes were able to submit working ARMPs, due to the delays and challenges that the BIA puts forth for tribes to complete them within the 3 year deadline. Additionally, many tribes are facing issues with implementing their plans, which often remain tedious academic exercises with little ground-proof relevance. This Portal compiles in one place the key data you need to fill up these plans, so that you can cut up the time it takes to gather and find the data, and instead focus on building plans that make sense for your and the future of your community. It also gives you additional resources to complete other types of plans, such as more comprehensive Integrated Resources Management Plans (IRMPs).
