Mohegan Tribe cuts contribution to Sachem Fund
The Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut has reduced its annual contribution to a fund it created with the city of Norwich.

The tribe and the city announced the Sachem Fund in 2007. The tribe promised to donate $2 million over five years and made the first annual donation of $200,000 in 2008

But both the tribe and the city cut their contribution this year by $50,000 and are tightening up deadlines and requirements for the 2010 round of applications. The New London Day called the fund a victim of the national recession.
