Additional Information Session for Tribal Governments on $20 Billion ARP Funds

Today, May 18th, at 3:00 pm ET, the U.S. Department of the Treasury will host an additional Information Session on the distribution of $20 billion State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to Tribal Governments.

Treasury held an information session for Tribal governments on this issue last Thursday. Due to high demand and technical difficulties the Department decided it best to schedule an additional meeting for stakeholders unable to participate previously.

This Information Session will provide an overview of the process of applying for these funds through the Treasury Submission Portal.  The session will also allocate time for a Q&A period, however Tribes are encouraged to send questions in advance using the registration process.

NAFOA strongly urges Tribal Leaders to take part in this Information Session which will further explain the procedure for acquiring these much-needed funds.  This session will also underscore the importance of, and provide guidance for, meeting the deadline for requesting the first payment on May 24, 2021 at 11:59 pm PST along with the deadline for requesting the second payment on June 7, 2021 at 11:59 PM PST.
For more information about the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds for Tribal Governments please visit the Treasury Website and read our Broadcast announcing the disbursement.  NAFOA will continue to monitor developments related to the distribution of the $20 billion to Tribal governments and will work to keep our community informed as new information becomes available.
