The Native American Recovery Fund Zone grant is now accepting proposals.

The Native American Recovery Fund Zone grant will provide flexible, capacity-building, and support grants to grassroots, Native-led projects and organizations supporting the long-term recovery needs of New Mexico’s Native American communities.

The Native American Recovery Fund Zone grant is a partnership between local and regional funders and groups, working together to support unique approaches by Native-led organizations in addressing recovery efforts in the following focus areas:

  • Family Economic Security
  • Local Health Systems
  • Local Food Systems
  • Opportunity Youth
  • Water Resilience

In addition to pooling resources, funders will collaborate with community leaders over a three-year period to identify community-based approaches to opportunities and challenges, and also to support leadership capacity within organizations at a time when billions of dollars of federal funding will be flowing to Tribes.

Through this partnership, community leaders will have the opportunity to build deeper relationships with funders and institutional leaders and to share their perspectives and local knowledge with policy makers. In the first year of grantmaking, each of the selected eligible applicants will be awarded a $25,000 general operating grant, followed by two years of implementation funding, if needed.
