The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy is hosting a free webinar on the Tribal Solar Development Policy Initiative tomorrow, August 25, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mountain Time.
With support from DOE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Midwest Tribal Energy Resources Association (MTERA) have embarked on a 3-year initiative to address regulatory challenges to tribal solar deployment. The goal of this initiative is to articulate key barriers to tribal solar and solar-plus-storage adoption at all scales and to ready stakeholders to implement options to address these challenges. This webinar will share some early findings from the initiative and explain how others can get involved.

Tribal Leader Roundtable – Tuesday, August 10th, 2021 AT 10AM
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) reauthorizes and amends the Small Business Jobs Act (SBJA) of 2010, which established the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) Program. SSBCI provides certain governments funding for 1) small business financing programs and 2) technical assistance to small businesses applying for SSBCI. ARPA authorized SSBCI Tribal government eligibility for the first time and provided a $500 million Tribal set aside. Treasury has conducted a Tribal consultation, hosted a Tribal information session, and engaged in Tribal engagement on this fund over the past few months. Based on the consultation, Treasury adopted a distribution methodology that allocated payments using a formula that is based on enrollment data and establishes a minimum amount ($423,000) for eligible Tribal governments. All eligible Tribal governments have been notified of their initial allocations via email. A Notice of Intent to apply for these funds is due August 16, 2021 at 5:00 EDT and applications are due December 11, 2021. Please note that the NOI does not obligate a government to participate in the program. SSBCI Resources:
