The Notah Begay III Foundation: 2018 Native Youth on the Move GrantsDeadline: August 3, 2018
This funding opportunity, made possible by the Nike N7 Fund, supports Native American communities in Albuquerque and surrounding pueblos and tribes working to increase the number of Native American youth ages 7-18 participating in physical activity, play, and sports. Prospective grantees/community partners must be interested in and committed to participating in the Native Youth on the Move’s Community Team.
Based on these barriers – time, motivation, location, transportation and cost – applicants must identify at least one challenge or barrier to increasing physical activity or sports that they will begin and/or continue to address. Grant funds should be used for costs related to participation in the Native Youth on the Move Community Team (staff time, travel, etc.) but also for other activities related to addressing the identified challenges or barriers. Funding may support (but is not limited to):
- Data collection
- Collaborative events
- Professional and/or organizational development
- Youth and parent outreach and engagement
Amount: Up to 10 one-year grants of $20,000 each will be awarded.
Eligibility: Organizations eligible to apply are U.S. based Native American-controlled nonprofits 501(c)(3), federally or state recognized tribal governments or programs, or Native American community-based groups with a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor. Schools are not eligible to apply unless they have 501(c)(3) status. For this particular grant cycle, only applications from Albuquerque, surrounding pueblos (Isleta, Jemez, Laguna, San Felipe, Sandia, Santa Ana, Santo Domingo and Zia) and Tóhajiilee are accepted.
