On Thursday, November 21, 2014, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe (“Tribe”) made its 2% distribution to local units of government from funds derived from its Class III gaming operations at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort and the Saganing Landing Casino. This year’s payments totaled $2,139,786.70 in Isabella County and $739,556.68 in Arenac and Northern Bay County.

In total, Isabella County local units of government and public schools submitted 322 funding requests totaling $8,403,889.27 and Arenac and Northern Bay County local units of government and public schools submitted 79 requests totaling 1,837,601.60.

“Clearly the need is very apparent in the number of requests being submitted. The Tribal Council is very proud that we can be part of satisfying some of these requests and we only wish we could fun each and every one,” stated Tribal Council Treasurer, Shelly Foster.

The 2% payments are made annually according to the Tribe’s compact with the state of Michigan, which was entered into in 1993.
