The Native Language Community Coordination (NLCC) project furthers the vision of ANA’s Native Languages Preservation and Maintenance Program through the establishment of cooperative agreements with site-based educational programs to demonstrate evidence-based strategies that integrate Native language and educational services within a specific community. The NLCC project emphasizes a community’s potential to integrate stand-alone language programs into a broader educational system that can offer a continuum of Native language instruction from pre-school through post-secondary education. 

The NLCC Cohort includes the five (5) cooperative agreement recipients. They are connected through their spirit of learning, knowledge sharing and collaboration. In addition, they are connected as individuals, groups within their communities, and their own organizational development. The NLCC Cohort began its fifth year on July 1, 2020.
