Representatives of the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians appeared before the Madera County Board of Supervisors Tuesday to announce the county-wide recipients of nearly $1 million in community grants.
Nancy Ayala, tribal vice chair and Jennifer Stanley, tribal secretary, told the supervisors that 101 grant applications were submitted this year. The 101 submitted grant requests totaled $7.4 million
