Tribal Planning Table

Who Makes Up Our Tribal Planning Table?

All Tribal Nations in our Region are invited to join our Tribal Planning Table. We promote active participation from our Region's 32 Tribal Nations (federally and non-federally recognized). 

What Does The Tribal Planning Table Do?

The Tribal Planning Table will bring together economic development planners and personnel from our Region’s federally and non-federally recognized Tribal Lands to explore issues specific to economic development on Indigenous Territory and identify opportunities for cross collaboration and capacity building. The Tribal Planning Table will surface Tribal priorities, proposed projects, initiatives, and strategies to the Sector Tables. Signed Partnership Agreement Letters will be required, and stipends will be available ($100/meeting for those who meet the requirements).

These efforts are separate from the State's Tribal Funding Opportunity, which allocates up to $25 million to support economic development in Tribal communities through tribal-led planning and implementation projects between January 2024–September 2026.
