Managing federal funding

Tribal staff augmentation services

Tribes are struggling to keep up with managing the amount of new federal funding coming out through the various relief acts passed by the U.S. Congress. This influx of one-time funding has caused a significant strain on the resources responsible for program management, funding administration and ensuring compliance, among countless other processes and procedures. Time is of the essence for tribes to put this funding to work to provide much needed relief to members in order to address immediate needs and prepare for long-term prosperity.

Tribes are tapped out in regards to available personnel. In addition, making one-time investments in personnel with the skillsets required to manage a one-time influx of funding is not conducive to the timeline needed to manage this funding. They need knowledgeable staff, now.
