On Tuesday, Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs Bryan Newland announced that the Indian Affairs Office of Indian Economic Development is now accepting applications for its Fiscal Year 2022 Tribal Tourism Grant Program.

 “Tourism is a vital part of many Tribal economies, providing jobs and bringing resources to Tribal communities,” said Assistant Secretary Newland. “The Tribal Tourism Grant Program is one way we are investing in Indian Country to promote economic opportunities in and near Tribal communities to make sure that people have the opportunity to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives in their Tribal communities.”

The program plans to fund 20-35 grants ranging from $25,000 to $150,000 for Tribes and Tribal organizations to hire consultants, perform feasibility studies and develop business plans for proposed tourism projects. 

The program, aimed at stimulating economic growth within tribal communities through tourism, allows grants to be used to explore how tourism businesses can adapt and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

All Federally Recognized American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes and organizations are eligible to apply

Any questions regarding the Tribal Tourism Grant Program can be directed to Dennis Wilson, Grants Management Specialist, at (505)917-3235 or [email protected]

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10.  Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
