Native America Calling: Hope for clean water infrastructure
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Monday, May 17, 2021

President Joe Biden proposes $111 billion to help solve persistent drinking water access problems, including for tribes.

Researchers recommend sustainable and comprehensive water projects with assistance from the federal agencies to address the long-standing problem.

Biden’s plan offers hope but there’s no guarantee it will get through Congress.
