DISCUSSION:
Under Proposition 202, Arizona Tribes agreed to share a portion of their revenues with the State of Arizona. Of the revenues shared, 12% is made available to cities, towns, or counties for the purpose of benefiting the general public through either direct distribution to the local governments or in the form of a deposit to the State of Arizona's Commerce and Economic Development Commission's Local Community Fund. As all applications to the tribes require a resolution of the City of Casa Grande if awarded, the City created a procedure to collect all Proposition 202 requests at the same time, review them to be sure they address tribal target areas and dollars are spent or benefit Casa Grande residents. This process is intended to consolidate the requests, review them together, and present to council as a consolidated packet.
 
FISCAL IMPACT:
The City of Casa Grande will be responsible for the pass through of these funds.  We anticipate this would take approximately 10 hours of staff resources with an approximate cost of less then $500.  
ALTERNATIVES:
Not to support grant applications.
