The Office of the Native American Liaison works with the United States government and tribal officials of federally recognized tribes across the United States to work on conservation efforts for fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats. The "Tribal Wildlife Grants" (TWG), located on the menu on the left hand side of the menu, offered by the United States government, are highly competitive and afford Native Americans the opportunity to compete for grants that "provide technical and financial assistance to Tribes for the development and implementation of programs that benefit fish and wildlife resources and their habitat." The necessary documents to apply for the TWG's grants are located in the small green box on the right side of the page, and helpfully, include format recommendations and a "Sample TWG Grant". The "News for Tribes" section includes items of national interest and resource highlights. Also available here are applicable treaties and laws as well as links to the history of the relationship between the United States government and North American Indian Tribes. In addition, visitors may want to check out their publications on everything from endangered species to kids and nature.
