Past Funded LLGP Grant Projects

We gave $3 million to preserve Native American languages in FY 2020.

This year, we approved $3 million in funds for 18 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and villages to document, preserve, and revitalize Native languages. We often receive more proposals than can be funded by our annual budget, which is determined by Congress and varies on a year-to-year basis.

Submissions were rated on how effectively the language programs would document, preserve, or revitalize a Native language; the degree to which the language addressed by a proposal risks extinction; the likelihood that the instruction to be funded would revitalize the language by preventing intergenerational disruption; and the number of students or percentage of tribal members the proposal would benefit.
