Dear Tribal Leader Letter

Dear Tribal Leader:

I am following up on the enrollment data collection discussed at the Tribal consultations sessions held March 25, 26, and 29 of this year regarding Indian Affairs' implementation of the American Rescue Plan. Indian Affairs identified, and Tribes expressed support for, collection of current Tribal enrollment data to inform American Rescue Plan funding allocations for Tribes. As a result, Indian Affairs is reaching out to all federally recognized Tribes to get update, aggregate Tribal enrollment information.
