The Navajo Division of Social Services (NDSS) intends to participate in P.L. 102-477, the Indian Employment, Training, and Related Services Demonstration Act, which is administered by the Department of the Interior, Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Education.
Participation by Tribes under the Act is voluntary and is intended to demonstrate how Indian Tribal governments can integrate employment, training, and related services to improve the effectiveness of those services, reduce joblessness in our communities and to serve our tribally determined goals consistent with the policies of self-determination.
The 477 Plan is a mechanism to limit barrier and streamline the administrative burden of managing our federal program funding to include the Department of Health and Human Services and Department of the Interior. Present from the BIA are the Workforce Development Specialist/AOTR and Department of Interior Solicitor who will present and answer any questions to Navajo Leadership and staff.
NDSS invites you to attend a P.L. 477 Plan Information Session on February 13, 2024, at 9:00am – 2:00pm, at the DBMHS Conference Room (located behind Quality Inn in the south facing building) in Window Rock.
Your attendance is welcomed as this will aid in understanding how the Division of Social Services is working to improve services to our Navajo children and families.
