2024 Lifestyle Grants - CLOSED

06.05.2024 By: Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Announcement

Lifestyle Grants - CLOSED

UPDATE: The 2024 Lifestyle Grant application has been closed due to all allocated funding being utilized.

The Tribe is happy to announce the release of the 2024 Lifestyle Grants. The Lifestyle Grant combines the 5 former Sponsorship Grants (Cultural/Emergency Preparedness/Technology/Food Preparation/Fitness).

Here is what you need to know: 

The Lifestyle Grant will consist of a single, $500, grant and we have funding available for the first 1,400 applicants. In order to give everyone an opportunity, Grand Ronde Tribal Members who receive the funding will be ineligible to receive funding the next year. This means a Tribal Member who receives funding in 2024 will not be eligible for the program in 2025 but will be eligible in 2026.

Applicants will receive a total of $500 per Tribal member to be used towards purchasing supplies associated with Emergency Preparedness, Culture, Food Preparation, Fitness, and/or Technology. Tribal members are eligible to access as many categories as they choose up to the $500 maximum (i.e. $200 for Fitness and $300 for Technology). Applications and receipts will only be received online so we can minimize lost documents. We are not responsible for verification of custody or guardianship. Applications will be processed in the order a completed application is received.
