    EWU 27th Annual Summer Institute In Tribal Planning

    Tribal Planning Basics

    This class consists of four 1.5 hour webinars. These will focus on tribal sovereignty as the bases for tribal planning; tribal court cases as the basis for the practice of tribal planning; the tribal comprehensive plan as the central component of tribal planning; and finally, the current practice of tribal planning by tribal governments through recognition of best practices.

    Tribal Grant Writing Workshop
    This training session is designed to provide participants with extensive instruction on grant writing and the administration of grants. This session will examine various grant programs for tribal communities and the rules for writing them. We will explore federal, state, and private grant making resources and the strategies needed to develop proposals. Participants will receive instruction on the principles of grant management, modifications, monitoring, reporting/audits and evaluation.

    Census and Population Data for Transportation Planning - October TBD
    This class consists of eight workshops, for a total of 13 hours on census and related data bases, and how data can be downloaded and applied to tribal transportation planning. Each workshop is generally 1.5 hours presented in a lecture or video/webinar format. Webinars will be recorded and access will be provided to students for reference. The class material is presented so students can go to on-line data access sites on their own computers and learn how to find, download, and create reports to apply data to tribal transportation and planning issues. Students will complete a "report" on the data for a tribe they select that includes its meaning for transportation planning. At the end of each workshop there is an evaluation of the workshop, a short quiz, and a reflective essay on the value of this material to be completed by each participant.
