Tribal Grant Writing Training

Free Tribal Grant Writing Training & Resources

Prepare for your next big grant with our online training and resources. These tools will help you write American Indian/Alaska Native grant proposals and/or to train others to do so.

Our grant writing training is designed specifically for tribes and tribal organizations to:

  • Increase the knowledge of grant proposal development
  • Teach how to write a good abstract
  • Understand what is going to be done for the grant and grant evaluation

These materials cover a lot of grant writing information in depth. Please allow at least 2 days or more to cover all the material available.
