Interior Department Announces Investment in Tribal Infrastructure Upgrades

The support will go toward irrigation and power projects.

The Department of the Interior has announced a $10 million allocation from President Biden’s Investing in America initiative to support the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)-owned irrigation projects and power utilities serving Tribal communities. This fiscal year 2024 funding, part of a five-year, $50 million commitment under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, is intended to modernize infrastructure for Tribal public health and safety.

“The Bureau of Indian Affairs is an important provider of water and electricity to the Tribal communities where it operates irrigation and power systems,” said Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs Bryan Newland. “President Biden’s Investing in America agenda is allowing us to continue fulfilling our trust responsibility for Tribal public health and safety by ensuring that BIA-owned and operated irrigation projects and power utilities are well-maintained and functioning properly.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Assistant Secretary Newland to be led by God as he oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
  • For Interior Department personnel as they support Tribal infrastructure.
