LONGMONT, Colo. – The First Nations Development Institute is accepting grant proposals through the GATHER Food Sovereignty Grant Program for up to eight grants of approximately $32,000 each.

This opportunity is targeting emerging projects that focus on developing tribal food sovereignty but all programs can apply.


The GATHER Food Sovereignty Grant is made possible through the Indigenous People's Fund of Tides Foundation, which accelerates the pace of social change, working with innovative partners to solve society’s toughest problems.


The Request for Proposals can be found at https://www.firstnations.org/rfps/6549/. The application deadline is Feb. 27. All applications must be submitted via the First Nations online grant application system.
