The Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin is supporting a road grant request for its proposed off-reservation casino.

The tribe wants to build a casino in Beloit. The city has applied for a grant from the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery program to make road upgrades near the site.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is preparing an environmental impact statement for the project. If it's approved, the state governor will have veto authority under the two-part determination provisions of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.

The site in Beloit is about 50 miles from the tribe's nearest gaming facility in Madison.
