Since 1993 the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) has been making bi-annual payments from gaming proceeds of their casinos to local units of government and to the State of Michigan. These payments are 2% and 8%, respectively, and are derived from the net win from all Class III electronic games of chance commonly known as slot machines.

The two-percent (2%) payments are made each May and November. Local units of government may make requests throughout the year. To receive an award the entity must first make a request in writing.

For the period of October 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019, the total to be distributed to local units of government in Baraga County, which was derived from the Ojibwa Casino Resort-Baraga, was $111,738.21.

Distributions totaling $151,299.13 were made to local units of government in Marquette County.

Eight percent (8%) payments are made to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.  The May 2019 distribution for the Ojibwa Casino Resort-Baraga totaled $446,952.76 and $605,196.50 for the Oiibwa Casino-Marquette.
