$2 Million Awarded to Native American Schools In New MexicoSep 28th, 2015 | By tcj | Category: Tribal College News Roundup
Today, U.S. Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich and U.S. Reps. Steve Pearce, Ben Ray Luján and Michelle Lujan Grisham welcomed news that the Native American Community Academy (NACA) Foundation is receiving a highly competitive $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to launch and maintain five schools in New Mexico Native communities. The NACA-Inspired School Network is one of 12 programs nationally to receive this award.
This will help prepare many students who will go on to Dine’ College, Navajo Technical University, Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute (SIPI), and the Institute of American Indian Arts. New Mexico is fortunate to have a congressional delegation that is strongly supportive of American Indian education.
