Minobimaadiziiwin Coalition (LDF Tribe) Receives PFS
(Partnership for Success) Grant
The Lac du Flambeau Tribe received a Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) Partnership for Success (PFS) Grant via Great Lakes Intertribal Council (GLITC) for a Prevention Program linked directly to the Minobimaadiziiwin Coalition. There are four tribes funded under this grant (Bad River, LDF, LCO, Menominee) for five years of funding from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2020. A Prevention Coordinator, Lashawnda Maulson, was hired in March 2016 to coordinate the SPF PFS Grant. The activities for the first year of the grant were to administer Community Needs Assessments, complete Key Stakeholder Interviews, and administer Key Stakeholder Surveys. Implementation of prevention strategies will start October 1, 2016.

As a result of grant activities, a Vision statement was completed; a 2013-2015 Minobimaadiziiwin Coalition Strategic Plan has been completed; a Coalition Effectiveness Survey has been administered with coalition members; a Community Needs Assessment Survey has been drafted and is currently being piloted before a final version is administered in 2014 with the LDF community; focus groups are currently being formed to gather input on community needs; research is being done to select a database management system that will be able to provide data for community agencies & coalitions to use when applying for grants, writing reports, and for community awareness.
Northwoods Coalition North Region Action Plan
The Minobimaadiziiwin Coalition is one of 54 coalitions that belong to the Northwoods Coalition sponsored by the Marshfield Center for Community Outreach. Since Northwoods Coalition was so large, regions were developed and Lac du Flambeau is in the North Region. Recently, the North Regional Substance Abuse Prevention Plan was developed with the main emphasis being a substance abuse prevention awareness campaign.
