This funding will assist Native communities as they continue to tackle the impacts of COVID-19,” said Senator Schatz, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “Our resource guide and FAQs will be updated as more information becomes available to ensure American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities have up-to-date information about the resources available to them.”
