Tribal Listening Sessions on Climate Change and Discretionary Grants—Session 3: Relocation, Managed Retreat, and Protect-in-Place Issues in Alaska

November 29

The Department invites representatives of federally recognized Tribes to participate in three upcoming virtual listening sessions focused on climate change and Tribal Nations and two upcoming virtual listening sessions focused on Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) discretionary grants for Tribes. The Department also invites Tribal youth to the first scheduled climate listening session, which is focused on Tribal youth and climate. Climate change, equity, and environmental justice are among this Administration’s top priorities.
