Departments
  • Energy Program
    The Lac du Flambeau Tribal Energy Program is a relatively new addition to the Tribal Natural Resources Department. Projects to date, and currently underway include the establishment of a baseline of tribal facilities' energy use, energy audits of Tribal facilities, assessments of the potential for renewable energy on the reservation (solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, and biomass), educational outreach, and Tribal capacity building.

    With this information, the Tribal Natural Resources and Planning Departments are developing a Tribal Strategic Energy Plan for energy conservation, and the development of renewable energy on the reservation. The Strategic Energy Plan will assist the Tribe in implementing energy savings measures and renewable energy projects to reduce energy use and spending, promote environmental stewardship by utilizing clean energy sources, and increase Tribal energy independence.

  • Food Distribution Program
    The Lac du Flambeau Food Distribution Program is a U.S. Dept. of Agriculture-funded food program for persons (both tribal and non-tribal members) who reside on the Lac du Flambeau reservation and enrolled members of any tribe residing in Vilas, Oneida counties and southern tip of Iron County.

    The program provides nutritious food items to eligible participants. It is intended to be a supplemental program and does not provide the total diet. Nutrition Services: Weekly cooking demonstrations and nutrition lessons on site; home visits for instruction on nutrition, healthy cooking, food safety, and meal planning on a budget.

  • Employee Assisstance Program
    The Lac du Flambeau Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a program designed to help employees or family members of employees deal with personal problems that may be affecting their quality of life or work performance. The program's motto is "Committed to Confidentiality, Trust, and Caring."
