Applications Available for Fund to Defray Cost of Native American Heritage Projects

K-12 schools, colleges and municipalities in Michigan can get funding to help them pay for projects that promote the history and role of Native Americans in the state.

It’s part of the Native American Heritage Fund, which receives a portion of casino revenue the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi gives to the state.

Governor Rick Snyder says the fund helps local schools and governments “cultivate awareness and respect for the culture and history of Michigan’s native people.”

Applications were made available yesterday, and are due by July 6.
