Thomson Reuters’ Aspatore Publishing has just released the new book Strategies and Methods for Tribal Economic Development by Greg Guedel, Chair of Foster Pepper PLLC’s Native American Legal Services Group and Chair of the American Bar Association’s Committee on Native American Concerns.
Each year, billions of dollars of funding and technical assistance are available to Native governments, businesses, and individuals for a wide variety of economic and community development activities. From multi-million dollar tax-exempt bonds to microloans, Tribal governments and businesses can access capital from public and private sources to create companies, construct housing, produce energy, build infrastructure—essentially any element of an economic development program. Strategies and Methods for Tribal Economic Development provides strategic-level guidance for Tribal economic development planning, along with connections to available funding and resources for implementing the selected strategies. Each chapter includes website addresses for the specific programs being discussed, allowing the reader to go directly from the program description to the online link for the program in one step. The book also offers practical advice for combining multiple funding sources and support services into a comprehensive development approach. For Tribal leaders and businesses interested in pursuing opportunities in native communities, Strategies and Methods for Tribal Economic Development is an invaluable resource for planning and implementing programs for sustainable economic growth.
