Chairman Weatherwax sent a letter to Treasury requesting an urgent Office of Tribal and Native Affairs Broadcast clarification that ARPA State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund monies are not at risk of claw-back in any rescission of “unobligated balances” of ARPA monies that might be enacted in connection with the current debt ceiling negotiations and any agreement for resolution.
Treasury has granted COLT’s request for clarification in their Tribal Broadcast:
STATE AND LOCAL FISCAL RECOVERY FUNDS (SLFRF)Treasury Tribal Consultation
Treasury’s SLFRF Tribal Government Page contains information regarding eligible uses of funds. Treasury has obligated and distributed 99.9% of funds to eligible Tribal Governments, which are being used to make a difference in communities.
