SHARE with Friend




The Placer County Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee (Committee) has been allocated $66,619.86 from the State Controller to distribute as grants for programs and activities designed to mitigate the impacts of gaming upon the community.

 As required by state law, the Committee was formed in 2005 to award grant funds to local government agencies from the Indian Gaming Distribution Fund to help offset impacts associated with Indian gaming such as traffic enforcement and family wellness.

 As provided for in the state law creating the Committee, members of the committee include representatives from the Placer County Board of Supervisors, the city councils of Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville and the United Auburn Indian Community.  Current committee members are Placer County Supervisors Robert Weygandt and Jim Holmes, Lincoln Councilmember Spencer Short, Rocklin Councilmember Dave Butler, Roseville Mayor Susan Rohan, and United Auburn Indian Community representatives Gene Whitehouse and Brenda Adams. 

The grant application period opened March 12, 2014, and closes at 5 p.m. on April 3, 2014. Grant application forms, instructions and guidelines are available on the Committee's Website. The Committee will meet in May at Placer County Board of Supervisor Chambers, 175 Fulweiler Ave., Auburn, to recommend which grants will be funded, and then notify the California State Controller's Office of the recommended and approved grants.  

The Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund Grant Program was created for local government agencies affected by tribal gaming. Only those applications that clearly identify and describe the effects from tribal gaming upon those agencies and propose projects designed to mitigate these impacts will be considered for funding by the LCBC.  For additional information, please contact the Placer County Executive Office, (530) 889-4030 or visit the LCBC's website.
