Carol Ruddell, M.S., Project Director


American Indian communities are underrepresented in research, federal and state initiatives. Tribes in six states participated in the PROMISE Model Demonstration Project, a joint project of SSA, DOE, DOL, and HHS. ASPIRE, one MDP, partnered with tribal IRBs/Councils to culturally and creatively support tribal youth and families receiving SSI, to pursue education and employment. This session leverages lessons learned as tools for developing future initiatives in partnership with Tribes.
