“Studies show that small communities, even if they are distant from larger population centers, can thrive if they have a strong leadership system,” explained Northwest Area Foundation President Karl Stauber, who made the grant announcement in a press release. “Our aim is to help rural communities strengthen their systems in order to reduce poverty for the long term.”
The college will share $1.3 million with Sitting Bull College and the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians.
