Deadline January 27
TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA - The Cherokee Nation has funding available for community-based organizations that would like to participate in self-help projects aimed at improving Cherokee communities. Awards are made through a competitive process and applications are due by January 27.
"The community work grant provides an opportunity for Cherokee citizens to work with the Cherokee Nation to complete projects that meet the individual needs of their community,"
said Chris Welch, Community Work Program coordinator.
"The need may be a community building to bring the community together, a nutrition center to provide hot meals or even a youth development facility. We view this as an investment that will build stronger communities and create a sense of pride (for their citizens)."
The program provides funding to community-based organizations that reside within Cherokee Nation's jurisdiction. The organizations must be majority operated by Cherokee citizens, making up 51 percent of the organizational board members. Projects should incorporate community volunteer work and primarily benefit Cherokee citizens. Organizations must possess a minimum of two acres with a clear deed or have a 25 - 99 year property lease at the organizations expense.
Applicants must meet all of the criteria to be eligible for funding.
Completed applications must be returned no later than 2 pm cst on January 27.
To request an application or for more information contact Chris Welch at 918-207-4953 or email@example.com.
