Emergency Relief Funding

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world, but Pueblo communities have suffered particularly difficult consequences. Due to these unprecedented times, and within our capacity as a small family foundation, Chamiza is also accepting applications that respond to direct threats from COVID-19. The grant awards range from $3,000 to $12,000. Chamiza has set the following grant making priorities for relief efforts:

  • Food, medical supplies and personal items
  • Water
  • Community Relief and Recovery Needs
  • Internet access and connectivity
  • Other needs and expenses directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • The Chamiza Foundation invites proposals from the following:
    • New Mexico’s 19 Pueblo Indian tribal communities
    • Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, El Paso, Texas, member of the All Pueblo Council of Governors and the 20th Pueblo
    • Pueblo community leaders
    • Non-Pueblo organizations that serve Pueblo communities.
      • These entities must submit a letter of support from the Governor of the Pueblo as evidence that the community has requested their involvement
