SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of the Interior (DOI) is pleased to announce three upcoming virtual listening sessions for Tribes focused on climate change and Tribal Nations and two upcoming virtual listening sessions for Tribes focused on Tribal discretionary grants. Climate change, equity, and environmental justice are among this Administration’s SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 top priorities. The Department would like to ensure that its efforts and the initiatives it develops to meet these priorities are shaped and designed based on feedback and information received from across Indian Country and Alaska Native Villages. Such initiatives include the Department’s Equity Plan, Civilian Climate Corps, the Indian Youth Service Corps, Tribal climate science technical support, climate adaptation and resilience planning and implementation grants, economic development grants, and many more. These listening sessions will inform DOI-wide and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)-led efforts. Tribes are eligible for a range of discretionary grant programs administered by the BIA, Bureau of Indian Education, and other DOI bureaus. These grant programs can provide funding to support Tribal operations, economic development, education, resilience, preservation of historic places, and other key functions. By identifying and addressing barriers to accessing DOI discretionary grants, the Department can better support Tribes in improving government infrastructure, community infrastructure, education, job training, climate adaptation planning and implementation capacity, and employment opportunities along with other components of long-term sustainable development that work to improve quality of life for their members. These listening sessions will inform DOI efforts to improve access to Tribal discretionary grants. We are scheduling the following listening sessions to create opportunities for sharing and dialogue about these programs and to learn what Tribes see as important opportunities. Each session has a different focus, as noted below. The following general questions for each session are provided to facilitate discussion during the sessions. More specific questions are provided on the BIA Tribal Climate Resilience website: https://www.bia.gov/ bia/ots/tribal-climate-resilienceprogram and the Department’s website pertaining to Executive Order 13985: https://www.doi.gov/ppa/equity/13985. Session 1: Tribal Youth and Climate Date: October 13, 2021 Time: 3 p.m.–5 p.m. ET Note: We particularly invite Tribal youth to this session.
