Planning & Development

Mission Statement: It is the mission of the Planning and Development Division to work cooperatively with the various Ho-Chunk Nation programs and communities to provide decision-makers with the information and technical support necessary to formulate comprehensive plans, make informed decisions, and develop new initatives. This mission is achieved through research, critical analysis, grantsmanship, and project administration, on behalf of current and future generations of Ho-Chunk members.

  • Each Planning & Development staff member has a specific role based on their skills and expertise. However, most staff have experience or have been cross-trained to serve in multiple roles. The division is located in the Ho-Chunk Nation Executive Offices located in Black River Falls, Wisconsin.
  • The Planning & Development Division serves at the discretion of the Executive Director of Administration and the Office of the President. 
  • The Division assists both the Legislative and Executive Branches throughout the planning phases of a project. The Division assists Ho-Chunk Nation programs by preparing grant applications, assessing policy impacts, and researching. 
  • In short, it is our job to objectively analyze the issues facing the Nation and develop comprehensive stratagies to address these issues.
