NAFOA, the Departments of Interior, Energy, the Treasury, and Commerce, along with experts in the energy and finance sector is hosting a series of webinars designed to show how tribes can take advantage of a broad array of funding sources.

Experts will discuss what tribes need to know about combining various programs and grants, financing pitfalls to be aware of and how to avoid them, how funding sources can “stack” together on one project, and more.
