New Grantee Orientation
Event Graphic

About Tribal Affairs Division (TAD) NGO

Annually, OVW hosts the New Grantee Orientation (NGO) to ensure newly awarded grantees have critical information necessary to successfully implement their new grant project including providing training on federal programmatic and financial requirements, and available technical assistance resources. This year, NGO will be conducted in a virtual environment. The OVW Leadership will provide opening remarks and attendees will include over 70 new grantees from four programs currently administered by OVW TAD. In FY 2021, OVW TAD made awards through the Tribal Governments Program, Tribal Sexual Assault Services Program, Tribal Coalitions Program, and Tribal Jurisdiction Program.

OVW also extends an invitation to this NGO to programs that received funding in an earlier fiscal year but have recently hired a new program manager or financial staff that have never attended an OVW NGO before. In attendance will be OVW programmatic and financial management staff, and other related federal speakers to ensure new grantees are able to access a multitude of resources available to support the implementation of the new grant project.
