Every year, ITBC receives approximately $1,000,000.00 in funds from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to help our member Tribes with developing their buffalo programs. Through a granting process, ITBC awards the Herd Development Grant to our membership in order to help develop new buffalo herds, and contribute to the long term sustainability of existing Tribal buffalo herds. These funds can be used for infrastructure improvements such as fencing and water sources, equipment such as trucks and trailers, meat processing for incorporating buffalo into Tribal programs, corral and handling facilities, salaries, and more.
