CFPB Blog: Partnership with Navajo Nation to help consumers





"One way we further our mission to protect consumers is through appropriately sharing with state and local law enforcement agencies information that CFPB has gathered. Today, we’re announcing a new dimension in our ongoing sharing efforts. The CFPB recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Navajo Nation Department of Justice, setting out a framework for coordination and cooperation between our agencies. This is the first time that the CFPB has entered into an MOU with a tribal government.

We are excited about the opportunity to partner in enforcing federal consumer financial laws to protect consumers on the Navajo Nation. This new agreement supports our work to prevent harmful practices that target Native American consumers."
