Yesterday, the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa & Chippewa Indians announced the distribution of $854,574.38 of gaming revenue allocation to local units of government. The dollars have been allocated for 60 local applicants as part of the Tribe’s “2 percent allocation,” which takes place twice per year.

Under the terms of a consent decree, the Grand Traverse Band allocates 2 percent of its video gaming revenue to local units of government, as defined in the stipulation, no later than 60 days after October 1st and March 31st of each year. This payment schedule was modified with the consent of the State of Michigan to July 31st and January 31st of each year because the fiscal year of the Grand Traverse Band’s gaming operation is calendar-based.

Since the 2 percent allocation began in 1994, the Grand Traverse Band has allocated $41,049,342.47 to local organizations.

For this 2% cycle, the Tribal Council voted to determine which organizations would receive allocations. Of the 78 applications received, totaling $1,653,865.87 in requests, the Tribal Council awarded 60 applicants for a total of $854,574.38.
