NAFOA is excited to present the Departments of Interior, Energy, Treasury, and Commerce, along with experts in the energy and finance sector in a series of webinars designed to show how tribes can take advantage of a broad array of funding sources. Experts will talk about what you need to know about combining various programs and grants, what financing pitfalls you need to be aware of and how to avoid them, how funding sources can "stack" together on one project and more.
This series will be spread out over four days, each with a different focus:
Aug 22nd @ 2:00pm est - 4:00pm: Federal staff from four different Administration Departments will discuss key Departmental programs/grants, how they can work together, and how you can integrate different agencies into one project.
Aug 23rd @ 2:00pm est - 3:30pm: Tribal staff and consultants address pitfalls to avoid, how successful tribes have planned and implemented their projects, and what tribal staff should know.
Aug 24th @ 2:00pm est - 3:30pm: Hearing from financing and energy experts about how to use public funding to get private financing, what options are available in both public/private financing and energy development, and what energy companies consider when making an investment.
Aug 25th @ 2:00pm est - 3:30pm: To conclude, speakers from the previous days will discuss examples of how all the series information works together in a practical, real-world way. Series will end with a policy discussion about steps forward, what policy changes might be forthcoming, and how things could be improved.
