Bridging the Divide: Ensuring equitable access for Tribal Nations to Land and Water Conservation Fund
Tuesday, November 21, 2023 (1:00 PM - 2:30 PM) (EST)
We’d like to invite you to an upcoming event looking at some of the barriers of Tribal access to federal conservation funding and some potential solutions. The webinar is hosted by the National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers and The Wilderness Society.
WHAT: “Bridging the Divide: Ensuring equitable access for Tribal Nations to Land and Water Conservation Fund dollars and other conservation funding”
WHEN: Nov. 21 at noon Mountain Time
WHO: Primarily members of Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities (NGO allies and other partners welcome too)
Description of the webinar:
The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) provides 900 million dollars annually in federal funding for conservation efforts including land acquisition. Yet, Tribes have been woefully underrepresented when it comes to receiving Land and Water Conservation funds. Why is that and how can we work together to address barriers for Tribes’ access to federal conservation funding?
Please join us as we share stories and experiences and explore solution-oriented advocacy that would improve access to funds for Tribes to preserve and restore cultural landscapes, support traditional practices, and steward their lands and waters.
This webinar, is intended primarily for members of Tribal Nations and Indigenous communities, preservation officers, government decision-makers and nonprofit allies, and includes plenty of time for discussion and Q&A.
Please join us!
