Native American Agriculture Fund to distribute $266 million

Philanthropy News Digest | August 14, 2018

“A decades-long battle to resolve claims that the U.S. Department of Agriculture systematically discriminated against Native American farmers and ranchers has come to an end with the establishment of a trust that will distribute $266 million from a 2010 civil rights settlement in which the U.S. government agreed to pay $680 million in damages for nearly twenty years of systematic discrimination in the awarding of farm loans.”
