The Administration for Native Americans (ANA): 2020 ACF Native American Grantee Meeting
ACF’s Native American Grantee Meeting is an opportunity for ACF grantees and federal staff who are working in Native communities to exchange ideas, provide feedback to one another, learn about how to better manage your ACF grant award, and learn about ACF resources such as technical assistance, toolkits, and other resources that can be accessed with or without funding. The meeting will be highly interactive and will include expert speakers, as well as dozens of workshops on a range of topics across programs. The plenary sessions and workshops will cover areas including data and evaluation and program administration, as well as topic-specific sessions on Native languages, education, and social and economic development. There will also be an interactive poster session, as well as other formal and informal opportunities for networking.
This meeting is open to staff from all ACF-funded programs working in Native communities, including:
- Administration for Native Americans
- Administration on Children, Youth and Families
- Children’s Bureau
- The Office of Child Support Enforcement
- The Office of Child Care
- Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting

You can find a draft agenda here. Any last-minute agenda changes will be announced in the morning, and signs will be posted outside the workshop room.
The hotel will guarantee the federal hotel rate for several days before and after the event.
As with past ACF grantee meetings, all grantees are encouraged to bring with them one or two items of nominal value (less than $20) that represent their project/program or community (tribe or organization) to serve as a giveaway at the close of the conference. This exchange is a way to physically manifest the learning and sharing that we hope you’ll experience at this meeting. All items will be distributed to conference attendees during the giveaway at the closing ceremony, scheduled for Thursday, February 13th. All giveaway items can be dropped off starting at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday.
