Tribe continues to support the community
ast month the Tulare County Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee awarded more than $400,000 to several local projects thanks to the Eagle Mountain Casino.
The committee distributes revenues from the casino to offset any local impacts the casino may have. Over the past decade millions of dollars have gone to local projects, much of which has gone to make improvements to Reservation Road that takes gamblers from the Valley to the foothill casino. Money has also been used to make improvements at the Porterville Police Department and Fire Department, especially the training facility that is used by both city and tribal firefighters.
