Historic Investment: $17.4 Million in Grants Available to Help Native Youth

A short update, rather than an article, briefly detailing the current administration's present and future efforts to enrich and better the lives of Native American Youth.

Included in this investment would be numerous school grants as well as increased funding for high-need students.
