Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds for Tribal Governments

The American Rescue Plan will deliver $350 billion for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments to respond to the COVID-19 emergency and bring back jobs.

The Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds provide a substantial infusion of resources to help turn the tide on the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.

The Indian Affairs Department is committed to assisting Tribes with access to resources and funding opportunities.  We are gathering and reviewing funding opportunities under ARPA and posting them below.  Please note that they will be updated periodically.
