TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Starting Oct. 6, Cherokee Nation citizens can apply for two kinds of grants to either fund community projects within the tribe’s boundaries or help improve organizations.

Through the CN Community Organization Training and Technical Assistance department, a total of $400,000 will be split among awardees who want to build community buildings, install water and wastewater line extensions for existing community buildings or improve access roads and parking areas or similar projects. 

The community service grant will split $150,000 among selected groups for training or buy equipment to improve their organizations. Work and building grants will total $250,000.

“These grants help our citizens improve their neighborhoods and organizational leadership so all our Cherokee communities continue to thrive,” COTTA Manager Rick Gassaway said. “It also allows the community to voice their needs and help achieve that.”

From 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 6, COTTA will be at the Hulbert Public Schools auditorium to help citizens complete community service grant applications. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the department will assist those applying for the work and building grants. The applications are due to COTTA by Nov. 9.
