Tule River Tribe supports community with casino funds
Last 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 money is derived from revenues at the casino based on a formula. The idea is the money is to offset impacts the casino may have on the county and other governmental bodies. Money has been used for scores of different projects, but the tribe and then the committee must sign off on how the money is divided.
