COVID-19 Webinar Series
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a profound impact on Native communities across the nation. As a national intermediary, Oweesta has had the privilege of supporting and witnessing many resilient, indigenous-led responses Native CDFIs are implementing that address their tribal communities immediate and impending needs in light of COVD-19. Please join us over the next several weeks as we provide a webinar series designed to highlight some of these responses and share tools and resources that can assist in your community response to this crisis.
