American Indian Emphasis
The objective of the Native American Emphasis Program (NAEP) is to increase the number of Native Americans in all categories, series and grade levels. Also to provide a network of professional support for Native Americans in NRCS as well as to encourage the participation of Native Americans in all NRCS sponsored programs and activities.
These endeavors are coordinated through the National NAEPM (who is assigned to the EOE branch and serves as a principal staff advisor to the director of Human resources and EEO Division on legislation, policies, employment, and program issues impacting on Native Americans).
