The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe recently announced its semi-annual distribution of 2% of its gaming revenue to local municipalities. The $3.2 million distribution represents 2% of the Tribe’s revenue from Class III gaming at its two casino properties, Soaring Eagle and Saganing Eagles Landing casinos. Of the revenue sharing, $2,279,121 was distributed to Isabella County, with $1,232,383 for governmental uses and $1,046,738 for educational uses.  $930,881 was distributed to Arenac and Bay Counties, with $651,617 for governmental uses and $279,264 for educational uses. The Tribe received over 350 individual requests for funding between the local governments and schools.

Chief Ronald Ekdahl noted, “The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe is committed to selecting projects that aid in improving the quality of life in our communities. We have taken the opportunity to sit down with our local partners and discuss the needs to better understand how to maximize these resources and meet some of the requests that the local schools and governments simply do not have the funding for. By continuing to collaborate and share in open dialogue we can assist in ensuring that many of the unmet needs in our community are addressed.”
