Native Voices Rising Supports COVID-19 Resilience and Recovery by Awarding $1.5 Million to Native-led Nonprofits

Native Voices Rising (NVR) is pleased to announce $1,500,000 of grant awards to 89 Native-led groups (with nearly half of funds going to new grant partners) empowering American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities across the United States to advance Native-led, community-defined solutions both on and off the reservation.

A Case for Funding Native-led Change

Opportunities are opening up as the result of improving economic standards, higher levels of educational attainment, and better health outcomes in certain regions; however, many of the challenges that have long faced our population still persist. For every major challenge and issue, there are also efforts to make positive changes.
