More Than $7 Million Awarded to 42 Native American Tribes in 16 States for a Wide Range of Conservation Work
Condensed by Native Village

The Department of the Interior has awarded more than $7,000,000 in grants for 42 Native American tribes. The grants help fund projects that benefit fish and wildlife resources and their habitat. 
“Tribal Wildlife Grants are much more than a fiscal resource for Tribes. The projects and partnerships supported by this program have enhanced our commitment to Native Americans and to the United States’ shared wildlife resources,” said DOI head, Ken Salazar.
 The grants are provided exclusively to Federally-recognized Indian tribal governments.
