Oklahoma City Indian Clinic Awarded Grant from NDN Collective 

Critical funding from NDN Collective will support COVID-19 communication response

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Indian Clinic (OKCIC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit clinic providing health and wellness services to American Indians in central Oklahoma, was awarded a grant through the NDN Collective COVID-19 Response Project. 

This Project is designed to provide immediate relief to some of the most underserved communities in the country. NDN’s intent is to quickly distribute resources to provide gap services during this health crisis to frontline organizations, tribes and individuals. Resources are also being distributed to artists and entrepreneurs who have suffered the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“NDN realizes that Native communities will experience unique impacts and challenges with the COVID-19 crisis,” Nick Tilsen, NDN Collective President and CEO, said. “This is in no small part due to the current reality and history of social, economic and political disenfranchisement of our people. While our elected Tribal officials navigate the crisis and lead their respective communities, NDN is doing our part to coordinate resources and offer our assistance during these unprecedented times.” 

OKCIC will use this funding to promote and provide critical COVID-19 communications to Native Americans and throughout the community. 

“We appreciate this partnership with NDN Collective,” Angie Childers-Reeves, OKCIC Communications and Events Director, said. “Native American communities have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds will assist Oklahoma City Indian Clinic to provide accurate and timely information for informing, educating and increasing access to resources in response to the COVID-19 crisis.”
