First Nations Development Institute is now accepting applications under the California Tribal Fund, COVID-19 Recovery and Resiliency grant opportunity.
First Nations expects to award 8 to 10 general operating support grants averaging $10,000 to California-based tribes or tribally controlled non-profit organizations as they work toward long-term tribal community resiliency and recovery efforts and support organizations and projects that strengthen California-based, Indigenous-controlled and -led organizations whose programs protect California Indigenous food systems, water, languages, traditional ecological knowledge, and land.
This grant is made possible through the generous support of The California Endowment. Created in 1996, the Endowment is a not-for-profit, statewide foundation that works to make California a healthier place for all. The California Endowment’s mission is to expand access to affordable, quality health care for underserved individuals and communities and to promote fundamental improvements in the health status of all Californians.
The California Tribal Fund was created to support California-based, California-Native-led nonprofits and tribal programs in controlling and protecting their food systems, water, languages, traditional ecological knowledge, and land. Currently, the fund is operated as a project of First Nations Development Institute.
