Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians Grant 2% Award to
Charlevoix County Hayes Township
Charlevoix County’s Hayes Township was awarded grant funds from the 2% Award of the Grand Traverse Band (GTB) of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians from the first half of the 2017 grant cycle. The grant of $5,000 will be used to construct pedestrian walkways leading to the fishing pier to be constructed at Hayes Township Park Camp Sea-Gull on the north shore of Lake Charlevoix.
The 2% Award is a condition of the consent decree settling Tribes vs Engler. Under the decree, the GTB of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians agreed to pay 2% of its video gaming revenue to local units of government for deserving community projects. Since the 2% Awards began in 1994, the GTB has donated millions of dollars to hundreds of local projects.
