The Interior Department has awarded more than $2.8 million to 13 tribal energy and mineral development projects in New Mexico.

The Pueblo of Acoma, Pueblo of Cochiti, Pueblo of Nambe, Pueblo of Jemez, Pueblo of San Felipe, Pueblo of Zuni, Jicarilla Apache Nation, and Navajo Nation will receive individual grants ranging from $40,000 to $1 million, according to a news release issued by Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) and Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM).  “The smart development of tribal energy and mineral resources benefits Indian Country, New Mexico, and the nation,” Udall said in a statement. “These grants will go a long way towards supporting tribes in New Mexico as they maximize the use of their natural resources and spur economic development in Native American communities. “
