LONGMONT, Colo.-Multiple Native American communities and organizations will receive support from First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) to preserve and protect Native American control of their natural resources, especially those impacted by fossil fuel extraction projects.
The grant funding is made possible through a $288,000 grant from the Broad Reach Fund of the Maine Community Foundation. The grant marks the fourth year of commitment by the foundation, which has awarded $858,000 since 2018 in direct funding to tribal communities and organizations on the front lines.
