Band Achievements

In March of this year, the Wahpeton Dakota Nation entered into a new and more modern fiscal relationship with DIAND.  Wahpeton officials have signed a five-year Financial Transfer Agreement, which will be more conducive to long-term planning and cost-efficient management and covers a wide range of programs and services.

The agreement will strengthen accountability to Wahpeton Dakota Nation members, through the incorporation of principles of transparency, disclosure and redress.

The FTA is effective from April 1, 1999 to March 31, 2004 in the amount of $1.8 million annually.
