Navigating the American Rescue Plan Act: A Series for Tribal Nations, Session 7
From setting tribal priorities, to building infrastructure, to managing and sustaining projects, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) presents an unprecedented opportunity for the 574 federally recognized tribal nations to use their rights of sovereignty and self-government to strengthen their communities. As the tribes take on the challenges presented by the Act, the Ash Center’s Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development is hosting a series designed to assist tribes, to help tribes learn from each other and from a wide array of guest experts. During this session, the seventh in the series, following a round of discussion between the panelists a brief Q+A session will be held to maximize the opportunities for audience participation.
