American Rescue Plan (ARP)

  • 06:00

    Note: This is 11:00am - 1:00pm Pacific Time

    The American Rescue Plan (ARP), signed by President Biden on March 12, 2021, invests $1.75 billion in American Indian and Alaska Native government programs administered under the oversight of the Department of the Interior’s (DOI's) Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs (AS-IA). 

    The ARP makes emergency supplemental appropriations and other changes to law to respond to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Specifically, it authorizes $900 million for the Office of the AS-IA and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to support a wide range of COVID-19 response activities. The DOI and Indian Affairs will consult with the leaders of federally recognized Tribal governments to discuss implementation of the ARP. 

    Additional information, including the Dear Tribal Leader Letter, can be found on the American Rescue Plan webpage

    The presentation is hosted via a teleconference. Follow along by viewing the presentation.
