Grants of up to $32,000 to USA Tribal government agencies and Native-led nonprofit organizations for projects that improve the food systems available to Native populations. Proposed initiatives should operate in Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native communities.
First Nations recognizes that Native food systems are important assets to Native communities. As a result, First Nations has long supported Native communities as they fortify traditional food systems, seek to increase access healthy and fresh foods, increase awareness of and involvement with where food comes from, and expand knowledge of the linkages between foods, Native cultures and/or contribute to tribal economic growth and development of entrepreneurial-related food ventures.
With the generous support of the Indigenous Peoples Fund at Tides Foundation, First Nations will establish a Gather Food Sovereignty Grant that will support work contributing to building a national movement that will fulfill a vision of Native communities and food systems that are self-directed, well-resourced and supported by community policies and systems. This opportunity is targeting emerging projects that focus on developing Tribal Food Sovereignty.
Selected grantees under this opportunity must use funding to advance Native American nutritional and health-related policies; policymaking approaches; community power; and change at the tribal, local, state, and national levels. Emerging projects are encouraged to apply.
Examples of allowable activities under this funding opportunity include, but are not limited to:
