Special Projects Funding

Special Projects Grant Program (SP)

The amount of available funds varies from year to year. This special project grant funding is not intended to be a permanent funding source for entities but rather a short-term allocation. Consequently, projects should demonstrate progress towards self-sustainability. Additionally, special project funds are meant for direct services to Native American citizens, indirect and administrative costs shall be kept to a minimum. These projects differ from year to year as far the scope and include projects such as veterans’ services, language retention, and youth and elder services.


Interested in Applying?

This funding is available for any federally recognized tribe within the State of New Mexico. Each year, a Notice of Funding Announcement (NOFA) will be placed on our website notifying all interested parties of new monies available. Each applying entity is limited to applying for one special project. Proposals should articulate a project plan and establish a budget that appropriately aligns with that plan.
