COVID-19 in Indian Country
"ARA and ANVCA are committed to building greater understanding about the critical roles ANCs play in the lives of Alaska Native people, and we stand ready to unite with Indian Country to better serve all of our Indigenous communities," two Alaska Native corporation organizations said.

"For decades now, Alaska Native people have relied on ANCs to provide access to education, health, housing, and economic support," Alaska Native corporation organizations said following a U.S. Supreme Court hearing.

Alaska Native corporations are asking the nation's highest court to determine if they can receive shares of $8 billion in COVID-19 relief.

'The ANCSA Regional Association and Alaska Native Village Corporation Association applaud the D.C. District Court’s Decision to uphold the Alaska Native Regional and Village Corporation’s right to receive much-needed funding from Title V of the CARES Act.'

The ANCSA Regional Association and the Alaska Native Village Corporation Association are pleased by the U.S. District Court decision to uphold our organizations’ right to intervene in this case.

'We implore our lower 48 tribal partners: it is time to stop efforts that divide us. We must work together to fight this global pandemic,' Alaska Native corporations said.

The Alaska Native Village Corporation Association and the ANCSA Regional Association issued a statement in connection with litigation over the $8 billion coronavirus relief fund promised to tribal governments.
