Na’ah Illahee Fund (NIF) - Native Community Crisis Response (NCCR) Fund
Grants of up to $50,000 to Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia tribal governments, indigenous-led nonprofit organizations and community groups, and individuals for environmental projects. Funding is intended to support projects addressing renewable energy, clean waterways, and sustainable buildings. This includes the restoration of cultural spaces for Indigenous peoples to gather in nature.
As Native people, Na’ah Illahee Fund sees the land as a living entity and tailor their work and grantmaking to support this concept for their relatives. They work in relationship with Mother Earth to strengthen her living systems in acts of support, reciprocity and respect. Na’ah Illahee places high value on sustainability projects in Indian Country that provide long-lasting results and move towards regenerative economies. Water is sacred, as is its protection. Revitalization of local waterways is critical to rejuvenate indigenous homelands. NIF provides support for projects that include the development and integration of projects geared toward renewable energy, energy sovereignty, solid waste management, stormwater management, land restoration and clean waterways. They support restoration and stewardship of culturally relevant sites and promote the healing of the land. They encourage organizations to apply who address unjust policies that have disproportionately resulted in decades of environmental degradation and negative impacts on Indigenous peoples' lands.
NIF seeks to fund the development of projects that aim to revitalize and strengthen Mother Earth and her living systems. They are looking to fund the capacity of groups who are doing the work and will implement Integrated and Green Infrastructure projects in their community.
