Request reflects Biden-Harris Administration’s investment in Indian Country to empower Tribal nations and strengthen their resilience by improving quality of life and economic self-sufficiency in their communities.
Following consultation, Indian Affairs is pleased to release a new Certification Form for tribes to use when submitting tribal enrollment numbers needed to equitably & transparently distribute American Rescue Plan funding. The form and other ARP info is online now!
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 indentified, 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.
