Treasury Tribal Consultations

Local Assistance and Tribal Consistency Fund, Section 605 of the American Rescue Plan Act

Tribal Chairpersons’ Associations and Tribal Organizations,

I am writing to send a reminder that Treasury is hosting three consultations this week (starting tomorrow) on the Local Assistance and Tribal Consistency Fund, Section 605 of the American Rescue Plan Act.

Section 605 provides a $500 million Tribal set aside to be distributed as $250 million for FY 2022 and FY 2023 to each eligible Tribe based on a consideration of economic conditions. The fund can be used for any governmental purpose, except lobbying. 

Attached is the Dear Tribal Leader Letter that was sent out and the links for registration are available here:

The deadline for written comments is February 28, 2022 AKST.

Please let us know if you have any questions. 

Best,

Fatima Abbas

Senior Advisor, Tribal Policy and Engagement
