Johnson O'Malley Program

JOHNSON O'MALLEY PROGRAM

The Johnson O'Malley Act was created in 1934 to provide supplemental assistance to educate Indian students entering public schools. In 1975 the JOM progam became part of the Indian Self Determination and Education Assistance Act. Under this act, Indian tribes contract the administration of JOM funds for elegible Indian Students residing within their jurisdiciton. The Glenpool Indian Education Progam provides the operational support for JOM in contracts with the Muscogee Creek Nation. Students must be a member of a Federally Recognized Tribe to be eligible.
