Invest Native Grant Writing Webinar Series

In early 2023, Wells Fargo launched Invest Native, a $20 million grantmaking initiative to support Native-led organizations and the communities they serve in New Mexico, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

As part of that initiative, Enterprise provides training and technical assistance to strengthen organizations' grant-writing capacity to engage with the Invest Native program and many other public and private grant programs.
