First Nations Development Institute Now Accepting Applications for “Seeds of Native Health” Grants Under Its Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative
LONGMONT, Colorado (April 24, 2015) – First Nations Development Institute (First Nations), a national Native American nonprofit organization that works to improve Native economies and communities, is now accepting proposals for its new “Seeds of Native Health” grant program under its Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative (NAFSI). The purpose of the Seeds of Native Health campaign is to support Native tribes and organizations working to eliminate food insecurity, promote access to fresh and healthy foods, and provide increased access to nutritional programs aimed at improving the overall nutrition and health of Native people and communities.
For complete information about this grant opportunity, please visit the application page at http://firstnations.org/grantmaking/2015SONH. Grant proposals are due by 5 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on Thursday, May 21, 2015.
With the generous support of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC), which conceived and created the overarching Seeds of Native Health campaign, First Nations plans to distribute up to 16 grant awards ranging from $30,000 to $40,000 each under this project. First Nations and the SMSC recently established a partnership to further the goals of the SMSC Seeds of Native Health campaign, with First Nations utilizing its NAFSI experience to help achieve these goals. Both organizations are dedicated to strengthening Native food systems and enhancing the health and nutrition of Native American children, families and communities.
Seeds of Native Health is a comprehensive, national campaign to improve Native American nutrition through capacity building, education and research, supported by the SMSC. The campaign builds on localized efforts to solve the problems of Indian nutrition and hopes to raise awareness, spread knowledge, create capacity for change, and develop additional solutions on a broader scale.

First Nations is accepting proposals for programs and/or projects that focus on strengthening Native food systems and improving the health and nutrition of Native people and communities. Desired programs and/or projects will noticeably improve a tribe or Native organization’s effort to increase access to traditional, fresh and healthy foods and increase access to nutrition-related programs aimed at improving the overall nutrition and health of Native people and communities. Moreover, selected proposals will increase awareness of and involvement with where the tribe and/or communities’ food comes from, expand knowledge of the linkages of food to Native cultures, and/or contribute to tribal economic growth and development with income from entrepreneurially-related food ventures.

Sorry about that, we’re revising our web pages and they’re a little glitchy still. Try firstname.lastname@example.org
