Event website

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and related legislation provide Native American tribes with access to billions of dollars for the development of clean energy infrastructure. However, without capacity building support and significant changes to current grid interconnection policies, the transformative potential and intent of the IRA will not be realized.

The Summit agenda is centered around equitable energy policy and conversations about energy access, interconnection challenges, electricity rate disparities, long-term energy planning, technical support, financing and grant support, cultivation of partnership opportunities will be fostered. During the Summit, with support from professional Native facilitators throughout, Tribal Nations can convene one-on-one with representatives from federal and state agencies to share their
experiences, listen, learn, and build strong relationships, which are essential for equitable clean energy development. The ultimate goal of this gathering is to bring about more Tribally led projects, leading to significant socioeconomic and environmental benefits for Tribal communities.

The Summit is open to leaders from federally and state recognized Tribal Nations at no cost and to their supporting organizations at a fee. Travel stipends are available for qualifying tribal participants.
