Join NmTC and the Financial Management Board (FMB) for a presentation and discussion about Financial Administration Laws and 10-Year Grants. Together, these mechanisms can provide increased flexibility and predictability in how funding is used by First Nations, including:
Greater opportunities for long-term planning and flexibility in allocating, managing and using funding to better accommodate local needs and changing circumstances and priorities
Ability to retain unexpended funds and opportunities to reduce administrative and reporting burden.
FMB representatives will provide a presentation and be available to answer questions, including those already raised, such as:
Does signing a 10-year grant agreement impact a First Nation’s ability to apply for funding for projects that are not funded through a the 10-year grant? If so, in what ways?
Do 10-year grants impact block vs. non-block funded Nations differently? If so, in what ways?
What are the limits and pros and cons of 10-Year grants?
What training, tools and support is available and how is it accessed?
WHO should attend?
Leadership and Administration and Finance Managers and Staff.
The Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council is pleased invite our Member Nations to participate in this event and will reimburse 2 participants travel and accommodation costs from each Nation. However, each Nation will be responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
