Funding Your 638 Healthcare Transition

The third webinar in our 638 healthcare transition series dives deep into the details of how to fund the transition. While Tribes will eventually get funds from IHS once the transition is approved and the transition date has arrived, the volume of work to be done leading up to that date will require its own funding sources. Our 638 healthcare transition experts will discuss funding options available to your Tribe and give you some creative ideas to consider.
