Organizations involved in supporting or improving communities throughout the Inland Empire are eligible to apply for grant awards from the Morongo Band of Mission Indians — with up to $5,000 per applicant available — tribal officials announced Tuesday.

“Giving back to the community has always been a part of Morongo’s values,” Morongo Tribal Chairman Charles Martin said. “We’re excited about the `Community Outreach Awards Program,’ which will help us support a broad cross-section of organizations that serve the many needs of people all across the (region).”

According to officials, the tribe contributes $1 million annually to nonprofits and other groups that provide services to communities throughout Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

The deadline for submitting an application for a 2022 Community Outreach award is Feb. 25. An entity must be located within the Inland Empire to qualify.

Applications are a single page in length and can be found at
