The President's Budget Proposal, released in February of 2015, would increase ANA's budget by $3.5 million. The proposed Community Native Language Coordination Initiative will build upon the successes of ANA's short-term, project-based funding to support community capacity building and systems development projects to ensure that high-quality language instruction, appropriate and culturally responsive curricula, professional development, and additional services and supports are aligned, implemented, and evaluated to create a seamless path for Native language acquisition across generations for educational and economic success. The Initiative will address gaps in community coordination and bring together key drivers of program effectiveness: strong community ties, integrated language/educational services, support services and interventions tailored to the specific community, high performing collaborations, and committed leaders and community champions.

We are interested in obtaining input from Tribal Leaders on eligibility criteria, funding levels, project duration, technical assistance needs, and potential measurable outcomes, among other things.

The ANA Tribal Consultation Session will be held on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, from 1 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Testimonies must be submitted no later than May 15, 2015, to: Lillian Sparks Robinson, Commissioner, Administration for Native Americans, 370 L'Enfant Promenade SW., Washington, DC 20447, To register for the Consultation please visit:​s/​2015ACFTribalConsultation.
