COVID-19 Resources Toolbox
Tools For Action
This study uses publicly available information to estimate enrollment and employment counts for tribes. These figures are only estimates created for the express purpose of analyzing the appropriateness of the US Department of the Treasury’s American Rescue Plan Act allocations. Our estimates have not and cannot be verified against actual enrollment or employment data submitted to the Department of Treasury by each tribe. We believe the estimates are as accurate as possible and reliable for the purpose of assessing the relative positions of tribes under Treasury’s ARPA allocations, but should not be extracted and used as accurate for any individual tribe or for any purpose other than how they are used here.
Navigating the American Rescue Plan Act: A Series for Tribal Nations
Wednesday August 4, 2021
Slides and Information provided in Session 6:
As the country responds to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the task before tribal nations is complicated by many unknowns. The Harvard Project, the Native Nations Institute, and Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health recognize the challenges you're up against and we want to help. We are monitoring tribal governments' response to the crisis. Across Indian Country, we are witnessing tribal leaders and national Native organizations taking action to protect and position Native nations to see a better tomorrow. These examples and many more make up the contents of this COVID-19 Resources for Indian Country toolbox. We've pulled together resources that demonstrate ways to build governance capacity, illustrate best practices by tribes, provide trusted information about the virus itself, and supply tribal health ordinances intended to meet your immediate needs. Native nation building begins with strong governance, and we hope the examples in this toolbox spark ideas for action that strengthens your community.
