Tribal College Education Equity Grants Program Changes

NIFA staff made a presentation to the First Americans Land-grant College Organization and Network (FALCON) group in Las Vegas, NV, December 7, 2005 about the change to a four-year grant cycle for the FY 2006 Tribal College Education Equity Grants (TCEG) program. The presentation highlights the changes needed in each tribal college's proposal. They are intended to increase capacity development in their food and agricultural sciences education programs. The presentation also highlights the need for each institution to begin implementing stakeholder input in the development of the TCEG program.

The FALCON group is comprised of tribal college staff working with the land grant programs on their individual campuses. Several members of this group were involved in the first discussions to consider changes to the TCEG program.
