What is ONAC?

The Oklahoma Native Assets Coalition (ONAC) represents a consortium of Oklahoma tribes and partners interested in establishing asset-building initiatives and programs in Native communities, for the purpose of creating greater opportunities for economic security of tribal citizens.

What is ONAC’s role with Native asset building?

ONAC is working with constituents  and partners to increase the number of Native asset building opportunities in the state such as:

  • financial education programs
  • credit builder programs
  • matched savings account programs such as Child Savings Accounts and Individual Development Accounts
  • microfinance programs
  • homeownership and foreclosure prevention programs
  • employment programs
  • entrepreneurial programs
  • free tax preparation at Voluntary Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites, etc.

 We invite you to attend the 2013 Oklahoma Native Assets Coalition (ONAC) Conference, on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, held at Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City, OK 73105 (Located on the northeast corner of N.E. 23rd & Lincoln Boulevard, across the street from the Oklahoma Capitol).During the conference, we will examine the current state of Native asset building in Oklahoma; have opportunities for peer learning; share information about Native asset building models, funding sources, partnership opportunities, research, training and technical assistance; and learn about ONAC next steps and ways to be involved in the Coalition.
