First Nations Development Institute: GATHER Food Sovereignty GrantDeadline: February 27, 2020
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 and Native cultures, and/or contribute to tribal economic growth and development of entrepreneurial-related food ventures.
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 at emerging projects that focus on developing tribal food sovereignty.
Amount: Up to eight grants of approximately $32,000 each will be awarded.
Eligibility: Federal- and state-recognized Tribal Governments; Native-controlled 501(c)(3) nonprofits; Native-controlled community organizations with fiscal sponsorship; and Native 7871 Organizations.
