The Eagle's View™ Planning Process

Increase grant competitiveness, by showing evidence of community-identified needs!

The EVP Process: Easy as 1-2-3

STEP 1: Gather community input on the needs of Tribe.

STEP 2: Facilitate a planning session with appropriate tribal staff to create a list of programs, projects or policies to meet the identified community needs.

STEP 3: Work with tribal council and leadership to prioritize those projects, programs, and policies that were identified based on tribal values.
