The Multi-Agency Tribal Infrastructure Collaborative (MATIC) is a group of public-sector agencies and intermediary organizations with funds and resources specifically for tribes.
MATIC convenes an Annual Tribal Resource Forum every January in Phoenix, Arizona. The event provides tribes and tribal organizations an opportunity to learn about funding, training and technical assistance available for tribal infrastructure projects. Meet one-on-one with representatives from various agencies about resources available to tribes for renewable energy, utility lines, broadband, water and wastewater infrastructure, housing, community facilities and much more.

Tribal Housing Excellence Academy (THE Academy) employs faculty members and coaches who have extensive expertise in housing development on and off tribal lands. THE Academy highlights best practices to leverage new funding and financing sources. In June of 2015, the first cohort of eight tribal entities from throughout the western U.S. completed four full weeks of intensive training to help move tribal housing developments from concept to construction. THE Academy is a joint effort between Native Capital Access and Rural Community Assistance Corporation. New funding has been awarded to continue THE Academy. Applications are available now and due September 15, 2016. Download the 2016 THE Academy Application HERE or Follow us on social media to learn about applying for new training in 2016.
ASU’s Construction in Indian Country Conference is the original training and education event focused on finding common ground between tribes and the construction industry for completing projects on tribal lands. The event takes place annually in April at tribal venues in the southwest and is sponsored by ASU’s Del E. Webb School of Construction. Starting in 2015, a new Development 101 pre-conference session on the land development process was added to the conference proceedings. Join us at this session for insights on the legal, engineering, cultural and financial aspects of tribal development activities.
