The Disaster Relief for Indigenous Communities Grant Program supports the recovery and revitalization of indigenous peoples and communities throughout our region impacted by disaster.

The Disaster Relief for Indigenous Communities Grant Program supports the recovery and revitalization of indigenous peoples and communities throughout our region impacted by disaster. Tragically, wildfires have become more and more dangerous, happen more frequently and have been incredibly destructive in recent years. The rapid spread of COVID-19 has added yet another hurdle. Indigenous communities in our region are suffering from multiple disasters along with additional complexities that other communities simply do not share. A lack of access to resources has made it difficult for indigenous communities to recover from disasters as quickly as other communities. 

Our goal is to work collaboratively with the indigenous communities, nonprofits, government agencies and philanthropic initiatives to accelerate recovery and rebuilding efforts to promote a thriving, resilient and stronger region. Advocating for indigenous people and specifically local tribes in our region through disaster response, building access to resources, and supporting tribal recovery efforts is vital and meaningful work.
