Tribal Resource Session: April 18, 2023
The Tribal Resource Session is designed to give an overview of the programs, grants, and services the Department provides to tribes. This session will be held from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET and is particularly helpful for newly elected tribal leaders and others who want a comprehensive introduction to HHS.
One-on-One Meetings with HHS Divisions: April 18, 2023
HHS will also be providing tribes with 30-minute timeslots from 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM ET for one-on-one meetings at the Hubert Humphrey Building where tribal leaders can share their specific health and human service issues with HHS officials. Various HHS agencies will be available to listen and contribute to the conversation. Please note that all one-on-one meetings are entirely in-person and availability will be determined by the volume of requests.
To request a one-on-one meeting, please e-mail email@example.com. All requests for one-on-one meetings must be received by 6:00 PM ET on Friday, March 17, 2023. In your e-mail, please indicate the HHS agency or agencies you would like to meet with.
Annual Tribal Budget Consultation: April 19, 2023
At 9:00 AM ET on Wednesday, April 19th, HHS will begin the consultation session. HHS will identify specific issues on which we would like to consult with tribes and will send them to you prior to the meeting so that you can prepare your thoughts, ideas, and recommendations. These issues will be identified in collaboration with tribes during the planning calls.
