IEN-WMAN Mining Mini-Grant Program. June 1, 2023.

The IEN -WMAN Grassroots Communities Mining Mini-Grant Program distributes over $200,000 per year in $4,000 USD grants to Indigenous communities and non-profit grassroots organizations across the U.S. and Canada. Our goal is to give at least 50% of the Mini-Grants to Indigenous communities. We recognize that mining activity often has detrimental impacts to all aspects of community and cultural well-being and we encourage projects that strive to protect the environment, ecosystems, cultural resources, and community health from mining impacts. This program is of tremendous value to community-based organizations, many of whom have very few opportunities to access financial support outside of their own pockets.

A Statewide LEA Initiative Providing Opportunities for High School Students to be Paid as Near-Peer Tutors (NPT). June 9, 2023.

The New Mexico Public Education Department (NM PED) recognizes the need to attract and retain quality teachers from diverse backgrounds to teach New Mexico’s multicultural student population. It is also imperative that NM PED provide students with a rigorous and relevant high school curriculum that prepares them to succeed in college and the workplace. High school students who participate in work-based learning programs gain rewarding experience in the work setting, acquire an increased awareness of the world via the workplace in their communities, broaden their appreciation of the need for postsecondary training, gain perspective on the important role they will play in their communities as employees, and develop a commitment to finding meaningful, fulfilling careers for themselves that are relevant to their communities. To address the need for valuable work-based learning experiences for high school students, PED is making $2,000,000.00 available for local education agencies (LEAs) who are interested in providing opportunities for high school students to be paid to provide near peer tutoring in reading and mathematics to students enrolled in that same LEA’s middle and/or elementary school. Funding is available to LEAs for program costs and wage compensation of high school student tutors.
