Oregon Tribal Grant - Overview
Spirit Mountain Community Fund Grants Program has given support to Oregon’s federally recognized Tribes since 2008. This new funding opportunity arose from the recent compact negotiations between the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and the State of Oregon.
SMCF’s Oregon Tribal Grant Program is an annual process that funds projects in seven funding categories specifically for the nine-federally recognized Tribes in Oregon:
- Burns Paiute Tribe
- Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua & Siuslaw
- Coquille Indian Tribe
- Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians
- Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde
- Klamath Tribes
- Confederated Tribes of Siletz
- Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs
- Confederated Tribes of Umatilla
We fund a maximum of one project per Tribe, per year, and applications are generally due in June. Grant requests are not to exceed $150,000.
Projects must fit within one or more of the following general funding categories and must be a high priority for the Tribe. Our categories are broad and flexibly defined:
Arts & Culture - Education - Health - Historic Preservation - Public Safety
Environmental Preservation - Problem Gaming
