To overcome revenue shortfalls that many rural communities face, the Winnebago Tribe creatively implemented a tax and designated tax proceeds for the building of a fund intended to support community activities and infrastructure. Administered through a tribally-chartered, non-profit organization, the Fund provides matching grants for projects that positively impact the community. By earmarking tax revenues and establishing well-designed procedures for project selection, the Winnebago Tribe better fulfills essential governmental responsibilities with steady funding and efficient and effective administration.
