The Tejon Indian Tribe submitted to BIA a request with supporting documentation to designate Kern County, California, as its service area under 25 CFR 20.201. The Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs has approved the request based on an evaluation of the information provided. This notice designates Kern County, in the State of California, as the service area appropriate for the provision of BIA financial assistance and/or social services for the Tejon Indian Tribe. The part 20 regulations have full force and effect when a tribe operates the BIA financial assistance and/or social services in the service area location. However, the Tejon Indian Tribe is not authorized to contract for or operate the Tribal Work Experience Program (TWEP) (25 CFR 20.320—20.323) and the Disaster Assistance program (25 CFR 20.327 and 20.328), as both programs remain unfunded by Congress.
