First Nations first received $50,000 in 2014 from Agua Fund for a project that allowed First Nations to provide financial assistance and capacity-building training to Native tribes or organization focused on ending hunger and improving nutrition and access to healthy foods, particularly in the Sioux communities of the Dakotas. Grants under that funding were made during 2015. In late 2015, Agua Fund granted an additional $100,000 to First Nations for continuation of the project, and grants were subsequently made in 2016. In October 2016, Agua Fund awarded First Nations an additional $100,000, and grants under this funding were made in 2017. In early 2018, an additional $100,000 was awarded. Most recently, in late 2018, Agua Fund awarded First Nations $100,000 in renewed funding.
