The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe is sharing nearly $2.95 million in gaming revenues with local communities in Michigan.

The tribe is sharing nearly $2.17 million with Isabella County, the location of the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort. Another $780,000 is going to Arenac County and Northern Bay County, homes to communities served by the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino.

“This process is an opportunity for us to share some of our good fortune while alleviating some of the needs within our community," Chief Steve Pego said in a press release. "I am proud of the funding that we have provided in the past and am very hopeful for the opportunities in the future.”

The tribe shares 2 percent of Class III gaming revenues with local communities twice a year. The spring 2015 payment total more than $2.7 million.

The winter 2014 payment was about $2.9 million.
