Grant to help tribes in Washington with Boys & Girls Clubs
A $101,700 grant from the Washington Attorney General’s Office will help tribes work with the Washington Association of Boys and Girls Clubs

The Tulalip Tribes operate the only Boys & Girls Club on a reservation in Washington. The grant will help tribes determine whether they want to start their own clubs or work with local associations.

“The tribes are sovereign nations, they have their own approach – as they should – to how they approach pursuing these kinds of opportunities and having their own questions,” Attorney General Rob McKenna said in announcing the grant, The Olympian reported. “The process of deciding whether there should be a Boys & Girls Club should be done in a way that respects their sovereignty and respects their own deliberative process and is a culturally appropriate process, as well.”
