Setting Priorities for Tribal Appropriations: Tribal Stakeholder Preparatory Session (Webinar)

Event Dates
This is the first of BJA's Virtual Listening Sessions on Setting Priorities for Tribal Appropriations. The webinars will be used to gather the views of tribal stakeholders in order to inform the federal-tribal partnership and grant-making priorities.

In order to maximize flexibility in its tribal grant programs, BJA welcomes input about additional ways its funding can enhance tribal safety and security, and whether its existing training and technical assistance meets needs to build capacity and expertise within tribal justice systems. BJA is also working to improve the grant-writing capacity of tribes generally, so that the geographic representation of its funding reaches areas of greatest need.

Stakeholders invited to participate include tribal leaders, tribal justice practitioners, grantees, evaluators/researcher, statisticians, tribal organizations, nonprofit organizations working on tribal issues, and representatives of tribal, federal, state, and local governments working on public safety in Indian Country, tribal communities, or native villages.

Both sessions will be streamed live over the Internet and require prior registration. Both are closed to the press. Information about joining the sessions will be emailed to registered participants prior to the session(s).

Date Created: February 3, 2021
