The NDN COVID-19 Response Project

The NDN Covid-19 Response Project

The NDN Collective’s COVID-19 Response Project is designed to provide immediate relief to some of the most underserved communities in the country. NDN’s intent is to quickly distribute resources to frontline organizations, Tribes and individuals to provide gap services during this health crisis, and to artists and entrepreneurs who have suffered the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Phase I Completed

Over $2,500,000 awarded to more than 95 partners in 23 states.

The first phase of the NDN COVID-19 Response Project for Tribes, Indigenous-led organizations, Indigenous Artists and Entrepreneurs is now complete and new grant applications are not being accepted. We are grateful that the NDN COVID-19 Response Project has been able to support many Indigenous-led organizations, Tribes, artists and small-businesses all across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The intention of the COVID-19 Response Project was to provide rapid relief and gap services to Indigenous communities struggling from the impact of the health crisis and its economic contractions.

NDN approved more than $2,500,000 in grants to more than 95 partners in 23 states, including over 16 tribal entities, impacting over 200 Indigenous communities across North America. $450,000 in grants have also been able to support nearly 90 Indigenous Artists and Entrepreneurs as part of COVID-19 Response.

As part of our continued work to build Indigenous power, NDN is engaged with many philanthropic partners to ensure Indigenous communities are centered during this pandemic and the health of our communities is a priority. NDN intends to continue offering essential service grants for Tribes and Frontline Organizations in future phases of the COVID-19 Response Project. We will be sharing plans to support transition response and recovery efforts in the weeks ahead.

NDN has an open Request for Information for Indigenous consultants with a history of successfully working with tribes. See application below.

NDN wishes thanks to all of our community, philanthropic partners and peers throughout Indian Country that have played an active role in our response to the coronavirus.
