The National Park Service has awarded 29 grants to support "the efforts of museums, Indian tribes, Alaska native villages and Native Hawaiian organizations in the documentation of NAGPRA-related objects... ant to pay for the costs associated with the return of the remains and objects to their native people".
"Projects funded by the grant program includes consultations to identify and affiliate individuals
and cultural items, training for both museum and tribal staff on NAGPRA, digitizing collection
records for consultation, consultations regarding culturally unaffiliated individuals, as well as the
preparation and transport of items back to their native people."
