Project Term: 12 months; 2017-2018
Grant Amount: $50,000
For this project, North American Indian Alliance (NAIA) will complete a needs assessment and strategic plan. This initiative will take place in two stages: first, a consultant will work with organizational leadership to create an interim plan to stabilize the organization by fall 2017; and second, NAIA will work with partner organizations including the county health department, hospital, and behavioral health providers to conduct an in-depth needs assessment and develop a more comprehensive strategic plan. The strategic plan will reveal current and potential service provision gaps and formulate a plan that addresses programming, operations, and financing. The goal is to stabilize the organization internally and build on the strengths of their current work while looking for ways to extend their services to the community.
