Tribal colleges receive improvement funds


EAST LANSING, MI--   Two Upper Peninsula tribal colleges are recipients of funding from a U.S. Department of Agriculture program. 

Bay Mills Community College and Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College are both getting $143,000. KBOCC will use the money to make campus improvements, while Bay Mills will purchase early learning and business equipment.

The funding comes through the USDA’s Tribal College Initiative Grant program.  Eight schools across the country received money through the program, which provides funding to tribal colleges to make capital improvements to their educational facilities and to purchase equipment.
