Mellon Foundation Awards Grant for Tribal Economic Development Seminars June 18, 2014 The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has just awarded a grant to Foster Pepper’s Native American Legal ServicesChair Greg Guedel to conduct a visiting-speaker series on Tribal economic development in 2015. The funding will bring national experts on Tribal economic development to Seattle to share their insights and strategies for enhancing opportunity and quality of life in Native American communities. The program will be hosted in the spring at the University of Washington in partnership with the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, and will provide a unique platform for Tribal leaders to meet and discuss development, poverty reduction, social justice and the use of sovereignty to create economic programs in Tribal communities. Stay tuned for a save-the-date invitation later in the year. For more information on Foster Pepper’s Native American practice, please click here.
