Tribal governments and their citizens may engage in comprehensive community planning to evaluate where their community has been, where it is now, and where it should be for future generations.

The planning process provides a forum for all the voices of the tribal community. A successful plan enjoys the support of all segments of a tribe’s society, including its elected officials, traditional leaders, spiritual leaders, elders, adults, and youth.

By conducting feasibility studies, tribes can make informed decisions about the future economic direction of their community and distinguish real economic opportunities from investments that could fail.

With the assistance of a qualified professional or consultant with no financial or personal stake in the outcome of the study, tribes can examine the potential risks of a business project to determine whether they’re worth taking

We fund various types of feasibility studies through our grant programs.
