NCAI to Broadcast Tribal Leaders Economic Stimulus Meeting Live online Monday, March 2, 2009 from 9 a.m. - Noon at www.ncai.org
Economic Stimulus - What Tribal Leaders Need to Know
The American Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Stimulus) includes approximately $3 billion that will go toward direct tribal programs, another $500 million will be available in financing provisions, and a number of programs include tribes as eligible recipients. Now it is time for you to get the answers you are looking for. This will be a chance for you to interact directly with federal agency officials regarding the stimulus provisions for Indian Country.
Tribal leaders need to know what is in the bill, how their projects and communities will be impacted and how to access funding for specific projects. This presentation will include a forum for federal agency program directors and others to discuss the Stimulus rules, funding provisions, and how the Stimulus funds will be distributed.
