What is Special Projects Division?

Inter-Tribal Council of California, Inc. established the Special Projects Division in the summer of 2012 as a mechanism generating sustainability services not supported with our primary grant funding.

Why is it important?

The division is a mechanism to operate and process contractual agreements, training and technical assistance for Tribal communities that have unfunded or underfunded services and projects.

Special Projects Division expands the limitations of simply operating grant funded services. ITCC's capacity of staff, consultants and volunteers can meet needs and respond to opportunities as related to agency vision and mission.

What defines Special Projects Division?

The Goals and Priorities Set From:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Community Assessments
  • Identified community needs


The protocols of decisions are defined under the ITCC Administration



  • Administrative Support
  • Fiscal Support
  • Training and Technical Assistance Workshops:


    • Board Training
    • Family and Domestic Violence Prevention
    • Coalition Building
    • Collaborative Leadership Skills
    • Program Development/ Implementation
    • Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)
    • Cultural Competency


How does it work?

One Example:

If ITCC provided cultural competency training for a Tribal or non-Tribal Government not funded by a current grant, ITCC could charge a negotiated rate, allocate the costs of related salaries, materials, travel, etc. to the Special Project Division line item, and generate funds not restricted by grant sources.
