2023 Pre-Application Training

The Eastern Region is pleased to announce that onsite trainings are back. We will be holding 2 onsite and 2 virtual 3-day trainings that are designed to provide prospective ANA applicants with “nuts and bolts” information on the federal application process and ANA’s Notice of Funding Opportunities (NOFO).

These free trainings are designed to provide prospective eligible applicants with skills to plan successful and fundable projects.

Participants learn how to:

  • Register and apply on
  • Understand the ANA Notice of Funding Opportunity Evaluation Criteria
  • Format, package, structure and submit an application for ANA funding consideration

Participation in the training sessions is limited to individuals who are employed by or are governing officials of tribal governments and ANA eligible native nonprofit organizations serving American Indian, Native Hawaiian, Alaskan Native, and Pacific Islander communities. Independent grant writers must provide a signed letter on organization stationery with their registration form in order to attend.

*Dates are subject to change based on registration numbers, publication of materials, etc. And in-person trainings may be cancelled if less than 5 organizations register, so please hold off on booking travel until your training is confirmed. You will be notified if changes occur.

**Consultants working on behalf of a Tribe or Organization will be required to submit official documentation from the organization stating that the consultant is able to work on their behalf.
