Picayune Rancheria's Grant Program Leaves Some Disappointed

The Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians' Community Grant Program awarded close to $1 million to a variety of organizations across Madera County.

The rancheria has awarded grants to government, schools and nonprofits through the Community Grant Program since 2007 and will continue to do so through 2016 under an agreement with Madera County.

Not everyone was happy when the grants were announced.

"I have to express my disappointment in the grant allocations," said Madera County District 2 Supervisor David Rogers of Chowchilla. "Sixty percent are being given to the eastern part of Madera County and not a single one of the nine grant requests from District 2 were on the slate and it was very disappointing."

We say:  WHY accept money from a tribe that has destroyed 50% of their own membership? The tribe deserves your SCORN, Madera County, not you going to them for handouts.   If they will cheat their own people, no wonder they will cheat YOU.
