Why I Should Attend?

Congratulations!  Your contract or grant has been funded.  Writing a successful grant proposal is one thing, but administering it is another. Being able to understand and answer questions such as project impacts of indirect costs; how and when to draw down the grant funds; how to account for funding received, submitting financial and program reports, and how to ensure special conditions and “match” requirements are met.  Contract and grant administration is critical for the overall success of your tribe or tribal organization.
