Over $1.5 billion Secured for Indian Health Service and Tribal Nations to Address COVID-19

With COVID-19 reaching more and more Tribal communities every day, funding and resources for the Indian health system are needed now more than ever. The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) , which serves all 574 federally recognized Tribes, along with partner organizations has continuously advocated for the inclusion of Tribes and Tribal organizations in recent pandemic response funding packages. This advocacy is reflected in Tribal health provisions contained in last week’s historic $2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Now, NIHB shifts its focus to working with federal agencies to streamline the disbursement of this critical funding.
