NDN Collective and Kauffman & Associates, Inc., are partnering to bring a four-part webinar series on effective grant writing to Indian Country as a part of NDN Collective’s outreach to Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities to help them plan and implement long term recovery strategies and access resources to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.

The panel will feature Crystal Tetrick, Vice President of Health Issues and Policy, Dr. Janet Gordon, Vice President of Education Systems, and Anna Whiting Sorrell, Intensive Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator. All three panelists work for Kauffman & Associates, Inc. Each panelist brings a unique perspective on writing effective grants to support initiatives in Indian Country.
