Indian Gaming Revenue Sharing
In 2002, a coalition of Arizona Indian tribes successfully obtained passage of Proposition 202, whereby the State was authorized to enter into gaming compacts with individual tribes.
The compacts allowed for expanded tribal gaming devices use of games and as well as pari-mutuel wagering. In exchange, tribes agreed to share a portion of gaming revenues with the State and its counties, cities and towns.
As a municipality the City of Glendale may be requested by non-profits and other organizations to support, via City Council resolution, grant applications that will be submitted to one of Arizona’s Indian tribes for shared revenue resulting from gaming as required by the State. Should the grant be approved by a tribe, the State requires tribes to pass the money through the city to the organization applying for the funds.
The city will serve as a pass through agency only should a grant be awarded and will not be responsible for monitoring, accounting or reporting on how the recipient organization is using the funds.
The City of Glendale has developed procedures for the equitable and consistent processing of Proposition 202 Indian Gaming Revenue Sharing Grant applications that require a supporting City of Glendale City Council resolution.
Please carefully review the procedures and application material listed below. Applicants are required to submit a complete application to the City of Glendale at least 60 days prior to the deadline the grant application must be received by the tribe.
