The Oklahoma Native Assets Coalition (ONAC) supports a network of Native people who are dedicated to increasing self-sufficiency and prosperity in their communities through the establishment of comprehensive financial education initiatives, Individual Development Accounts, and other asset-building strategies. ONAC provides necessary building blocks for tribal citizens to grow healthy food systems, such as helping Native youth and their families to save for trade school, college, and careers in agriculture, farming, ranching, and policy work to promote healthy food systems. ONAC also administers family emergency savings account program, provide Native-specific financial education, act as an intermediary funder, and provide technical assistance and training to tribes and Native-led nonprofits to administer various asset building programs that impact those engaged in Native food systems.
