Since 1991 Richfield Residential Hall has been funded through a PL 100-297 Tribal Grant that must be reauthorized every three years. On Friday, March 23rd, the RRH Governing Board and Administration successfully negotiated reauthorization of the grant under which the program operates. Legislation for the reauthorization was prepared by the RRH Governing Board and Administration, and was sponsored by the honorable Jonathan Nez, Tribal Delegate from Shonto. This hearing before the Dine Education Committee was the culminating event of a long process, and resulted in a favorable outcome for our great program. Many high ranking Tribal Officials were in attendance at this event, and gave many favorable remarks about our program. As a result, Richfield Residential Hall is set to continue its tradition of excellence by serving Native American Youth for many years to come. Thanks to the RRH Governing Board, Administration, and Mr. Jonathan Nez for all of their hard work and tireless efforts to keep our program running.
