Training & Technical Assistance
ANA’s authorizing legislation, The Native Americans Programs Act, requires ANA to provide training and technical assistance to prospective applicants and current grantees. ANA provides T/TA in planning, developing, conducting and administering ANA projects, short term in-service training for personnel working on ANA-funded projects, and upon denial of a grant application, technical assistance in revising a grant proposal.
To meet this requirement, ANA contracts training and technical assistance providers (T/TA providers) for four geographic regions: East, West, Alaska, and Pacific. T/TA Providers offer free training and technical assistance to applicants and grantees.
The project planning and development manual provides ANA applicants with skills to plan successful community development projects.
Pre-application trainings are designed to provide prospective ANA applicants with basic information on the federal application process.
The post-award manual is intended for awarded ANA grantees.
The Non-Profit Tool Kit is a 208-page guide with information on creating and managing a Non-Profit Organization.
