Whether you’re a long-time recipient of federal grants or seeking such awards for the first time, it’s important for Tribal Financial Management professionals to understand the many strings attached to these funds in order to account for and stay in compliance.

Join REDW Principals Corrine Wilson and Chris Tyhurst and Dorsey & Whitney‘s James Nichols for a full day of hands-on training aimed at helping you navigate these complex and often confusing grant requirements. You’ll gain a comprehensive working knowledge of the accounting principles that apply to all federal awards/grants, as well as financial management regulations that are unique to tribal environments.

In particular, you’ll learn more about the Self Determination Act/PL 93-638 and how to successfully negotiate self-determination/self-governance awards and contracts to benefit your tribe.
