Since 1993, the Sault Tribe has disbursed 2 percent payments twice annually to U.P. communities and organizations. Funds are distributed based to communities extending from St. Ignace to Manistique, to Marquette to Sault Ste. Marie. To date, more than $31 million has been awarded by the tribe based on 2 percent of slot revenue from the tribe’s Kewadin Casino properties in Sault Ste. Marie, St. Ignace, Hessel, Manistique and Christmas.
