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) in four geographic regions: East, West, Alaska, and Pacific (see map at right). T/TA Providers offer free training and technical assistance to applicants and grantees:
