Tribal consultation grants

Tribal Consultation Grants are non-competitive grants awarded to eligible Tribes to consult on spending decisions from accounts created in the Climate Commitment Act (CCA). In the 2022 legislative session, the Washington State Legislature passed Engrossed Substitute House Bill 1753, which establishes an enhanced process for tribal consultation on spending decisions from accounts created in the CCA. The purpose of the grants is to support Tribes with funds to engage in these consultation processes.
