The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa & Chippewa Indians announced the distribution of $701,948.11 of gaming revenue allocation to local units of government. The dollars have been allocated to 38 local applicants as part of the Tribe’s “2 percent allocation,” which takes place twice per year.

Since the 2 percent allocation began in 1994, the Grand Traverse Band has allocated $37,879,541.58 to local organizations. For this 2% cycle, the Tribal Council voted to determine which organizations would receive allocations. Of the 78 applications received, totaling $2,100,449.91 in requests, the Tribal Council awarded 38 applicants for a total of $701,948.11.

The Grand Traverse Band will make its decision regarding the second 2018 2% allocation in December 2018.
