New Tribal Resources Content Available (7/15/14)
As part of Governor Inslee's commitment to improving government-to-government relations between the state and Washington's tribes through the 1989 Centennial Accord, state agencies have been charged with providing tribes with tools and content they may need to do business. This website now includes grant-related content for tribes, which are their own unique and sovereign governments, and, in many cases, direct grantees of the US Department of Labor funds. Content will grow and evolve over time. If there are resources you'd like to see included, please e-mail us.
