Tribal government representatives will be able to discuss their needs and priorities and learn about basic processes to apply for federal grants.

- AML will get your name, affiliation, contact information, and a short version of your needs.
- AML will share that information with our contracted grant writing professional, who will contact you directly to schedule some time for a phone meeting.
- Needs or priorities of your community and why you need funding.
- Grant opportunities that might be a ‘good fit’ for your need(s).
- Budgets and other requirements commonly needed with grant applications.

The meeting time is flexible, but in consideration of others who would like to meet with the grant writer, we would ask you to limit your call time to one hour. If requested, the grant writer consultant will schedule a good time to call you back to continue the conversation.
