The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) has notified BJA Tribal grantees that they are authorized to attend the 16th National Indian Nations Conference without the need for specific authorization by their BJA grant managers. However they should check with their BJA grant manager to ensure that they have adequate travel and training funds remaining in their budget.
