How to Apply

Desert CanyonIndian Land Tenure Foundation (ILTF) uses both a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) and Request for Proposals (RFP) process which focus on our mission and strategies. See program area of interest for appropriate LOI or RFP requirement. All projects must promote activities that directly benefit Native people and strengthen their relationship to their homelands.

Entities eligible for funding include:

  • Tribal, local and state governments
  • Nonprofit organizations with a 501(c)(3) designation, including educational institutions 
Activities that are not eligible for funding include the following:
  • Advocacy and lobbying efforts to influence legislation 
  • Endowments 
  • Land purchases
  • Benefits, fundraisers, walk-a-thons, telethons and galas 
  • Scholarships, tuition assistance or other direct funding to individuals 
  • Special events, except when the event is a key strategy in a continuum of efforts to achieve community goals in the Foundation’s strategy areas 

As you might expect, we receive more requests than we are able to fund. For LOIs, ILTF will invite full proposals only for projects that align with the foundation’s mission and strategies.

Funding requests are accepted on an ongoing basis and will be reviewed three times a year with decisions made by the ILTF board of directors at their meetings in January, May and September.
