Thinking Outside of the NAHASDA Box
Tuesday, June 20, 2017 6:00:00 PM UTC - 7:00:00 PM UTC
Training Description:
One of the most urgent needs in Native communities is housing. Many Tribal members live in inadequate houses or have become homeless. NAHASDA funds are not enough to meet this tremendous need in most Native communities. Leveraging or otherwise combing funds from multiple sources may be necessary to undertake larger-scale housing projects that will meet these housing needs. This session will explore why some have a difficult time “Thinking Outside the NAHASDA Box” and case studies of some who don’t.
