The Morris K. Udall Foundation (Udall Foundation) was established by the U.S. Congress in 1992 as an independent executive branch agency to honor Morris K. Udall's lasting impact on this Nation’s environment, public lands, and natural resources, and his support of the rights and self-governance of Native Americans and Alaska Natives (P.L. 102-259). The 1998 Environmental Policy and Conflict Resolution Act (P.L. 105-156) created the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution as a program of the Udall Foundation to assist parties in resolving environmental, public lands, and natural resources conflicts nationwide that involve Federal agencies or interests. In 2000, Congress authorized the Udall Foundation to conduct management and leadership education and provide assistance and resources for policy analysis for Native American and Alaska Native leaders (P.L. 106-568). In 2009, Congress enacted legislation to honor Stewart L. Udall and add his name to the Udall Foundation (P.L. 111-90). The agency is now known as the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation. In 2019, Congress enacted legislation to reauthorize the Udall Foundation and to amend the enabling legislation by renaming the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution as the John S. McCain III National Center for Environmental Conflict Resolution, and to include the Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus® Program and the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy as formal elements of the Udall Foundation’s Education Programs (P.L. 116-94). The Udall Foundation’s enabling legislation is codified at 20 U.S.C. 5601-5609. The agency is headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, and maintains an additional office in Washington, D.C.
