As part of the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund, the CARES Act will provide payments to state, local, and tribal governments navigating the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Payments to tribal governments are determined by the Secretary of the Treasury working with the Secretary of the Interior and Indian tribes. While these consultations are still underway, there is certain data that is requested from tribal governments as details about funding distribution are being reviewed.
The Treasury website states “Governments eligible for payments must provide payment information and required supporting documentation through the electronic form at the Treasury website. To ensure payments are made within the 30 day period specified by the CARES Act, governments must submit completed payment materials no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT on April 17, 2020. Eligible local and tribal governments that do not provide required information—and in the case of a local government, the required certification—by 11:59 p.m. EDT on April 17, 2020, may not receive any payment from the fund.”
Tribal governments wishing to be considered in the funding distributions should submit all required information on the Treasury website before this deadline.
