We are happy to announce that the Endangered Language Fund will be managing
and distributing a new $1.6 million grant program, the Native Voices
Endowment. This money comes from the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Council,
which received the revenues from the U.S. Mint's sale of the 2004 Lewis &
Clark Commemorative Coin. Grants through this program will be available to
the Native American tribes that came in contact with the Lewis and Clark
Expedition between 1804-1806. 

The investment will be managed by the Oregon Community Foundation. It will
generate an estimated $75,000 in interest each year, which will be
available to enrolled tribal members, tribal government language programs,
tribal community language programs and tribal schools and colleges.
Proposals will be accepted for Native American language education programs,
individual study by Native American language students, and research efforts
to document and record Native American languages for future preservation
and education. To learn more about this grant program, and to view a list
of eligible tribes, please visit our website:
