$850 Grants Development for Tribes & Tribal Organizations 9/14 to 9/16

9/7 – 9/9    Billings, MT

Why I Should Attend?

The federal government’s grant deadline “Rush Hour” traditionally runs from December through March. Grant writers that are the most successful at winning grants recognize that grant writing is about effective program development, implementation, and management–not just a pursuit for grant dollars. The OMB Super Circular provides extensive rules that apply directly to discretionary grants that tribal governments, tribal organizations, and nonprofit organizations must learn and apply to their grant applications and grant awards. This course will help participants to develop realistic and justifiable budgets to make sure the tribe or organization is not “saddled” with having to fund the new projects. Many federal grant programs require a “match”. This course will provide participants with creative solutions to help meet the grant matching requirements. Federal agencies also require some evidence of community planning. This course will also inform the participants of the OMB Super Circular, and how it will affect your grant awards.

OMB Super Circular rules differ from rules under the Indian Self-Determination Act, yet there are similarities. Instructors will identify the differences and similarities between federal awards under the Indian Self-Determination Act and discretionary grants. KIVA developed a unique cost principles matrix that combines cost principles under the OMB Super Circular and the Indian Self-Determination Act. The cost principles matrix is a valuable tool for tribal governments and tribal organizations because Indian tribes and tribal organizations are very unique in how they operate their programs which affects how they spend federal funds under their federal awards.
