Distribution and Investment Board

Request for Proposals for 2016

The Distribution and Investment Board is currently requesting proposals for 2016, per the Approved revenue Allocation Plan; Klamath Tribal Code Title 7 Chapter 50.  The next awards to be distributed during 2016 are dependent upon excess revenue generated by the Tribes gaming economic enterprise during the year 2015 as declared in the annual casino audit.

The Revenue Allocation Plan is adopted pursuant to the authority vested in the Klamath Tribes General Council by virtue of its inherent sovereignty as Indian Tribal government and Article VI of the constitution of the Klamath Tribes that provides that the General Council has the power to expend and recommend expenditure of Tribal Funds and to exercise all other reserved powers.

The Klamath Tribes General Council established the Klamath Tribes Distribution and Investment Board (KTDIB) for the purpose of reviewing proposals for supplemental funding under the Klamath Tribes Revenue Allocation Plan and allocating funds in accordance with the requirements of the Plan.

The purpose of this Revenue Allocation Plan is to establish a fair and equitable process for the Klamath Tribes to distribute excess net revenues derived from its gaming operation KLA-MO-Ya Casino Corporation, consistent with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988.
