DOI Begins Tribal Infrastructure Consultations

Will speak with each nation individually to assess needs.

The Department of the Interior recently announced that they would begin nation-to-nation consultations with tribes in order to most effectively use the $13 billion sanctioned for tribal use. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides a substantial amount of money for the infrastructure of Native American nations.

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is an unprecedented investment in Indian Country that will ensure that future generations have clean air, drinkable water, fertile soil and an overall quality of life that is currently threatened by the worsening climate crisis,” said Secretary Deb Haaland. “Tribal leaders know best the needs of their people. It is critical that Tribes continue to be at the decision-making table as we implement this historic opportunity.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland to seek God’s guidance as she supports her fellow Native Americans.
  • For Interior officials to be discerning as they begin this consultation process.
  • For the president’s administration as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is implemented and funds allocated to provide water, repair roads, and provide other resources.
