Resource Guide Outlines More Than $720 Million For Tribes And Native Communities In Inflation Reduction Act That President Signed Into Law

 

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, released a resource guide on provisions supporting Tribes and Native communities in the Inflation Reduction Act, which President Biden signed into law today. Schatz voted to pass the bill in the Senate last week.

 

“More than $720 million in federal funding is heading to Native communities to support Native-led climate solutions and advance Tribal energy development,” said Chairman Schatz. “Our resource guide will help Tribes and Native communities navigate the Inflation Reduction Act’s direct investment in climate adaptation and clean energy – the largest ever in U.S. history.”
