Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning

Planning ahead for current and future generations has always been a priority for Tribal Nations, Villages and Indigenous peoples. Your children are precious gifts to be nurtured and their futures involve the critical responsibility of planning and carrying out those plans with deliberation, cultural sensitivity and honor. Strategic planning supports the journey towards achieving your community goals for the future.

For OJJDP tribal grantees, the Grantee Portal provides access to strategic planning documents, resources and grant-specific information.


If you’re not a current grantee, please visit our Resource Library for helpful strategic planning materials and resources, which are available to everyone.
