U.S. Treasury and Tribes Discuss Deployment of ARP Funds

“Will these funds … replenish revenues lost during the pandemic?” Question asked during the U.S. Treasury consultation with tribal leaders on May 18, 2021.


According to the Department of Treasury, Tribes can use American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding to mitigate and contain COVID-19 public health issues and assist the economic situation of workers, families, and small businesses negatively impacted by the virus. ARP funds can also be used for water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure projects, providing equity-focused services for health, housing, and education disparities, and promoting healthy childhood environments.
