By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify appropriate sources and opportunities for funding
  • Discuss the importance of fully understanding the requirements of the funding opportunity
  • Discuss how to develop a funding proposal, including letter of intent, narrative, budget, and other possible required documents

    Prior to committing to public health accreditation or for those who are simply interested in exploring what public health accreditation entails, Tribal public health entities may consider conducting a Self-Assessment. A public health accreditation self-assessment can be a powerful tool for highlighting strengths in the public health system, as well as identifying gaps and areas for improvement. Many Tribes have found this process extremely valuable and have used it to guide efforts toward improving their public health systems, regardless of whether or not their goal is public health accreditation. Join National Indian Health Board (NIHB) and three Tribal public health officials who conducted a self-assessment of their public health system and hear:

    • Why they chose to conduct a self-assessment
    • What they learned about their organization from the process
    • Who was involved, and
    • How they are using the results
