The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribal Council has scheduled their annual 2% distribution for the spring 2014 season.

Local units of government and public schools will be able to share $1,981,585.21 in Isabella County and $627,888.41 in Northern Bay and Arenac Counties. Those funds come from net gaming proceeds from class III games of chance. Items such as computer labs, text books, roads resurfacing and much more are purchased county wide with these proceeds.

As with other years, the Tribal Council pours over many different requests. This year there were a combined 439 individual requests. Local governments turned in 108 and 331 were handed in from local schools. Even though the revenue hasn't increased from last fall, the numbers of requests are growing. This is a true reflection of our economy and our resilience.

Isabella local units of government will share $1 ,233,462.46 while the school district throughout Isabella County will share $748,122.75. Distribution for Isabella will be on Thursday, May 29, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. at Tribal Operations Seniors Room. Arenac and Northern Bay Counties will share $409,779.71. Arenac and Pinconning schools will share $218,108.70. Distribution for Saganing will be on Friday, May 30, 2014, at 11 :00 a.m.
