The initiative on Universal Access to Clean Water for Tribal Communities strongly supports IHS’s efforts to provide clean water access and sanitation services to Tribal communities and applauds the new funding available through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. We appreciate the thoughtful approach that IHS is taking to the allocation of this funding. We want to emphasize the need to deploy this unprecedented capital infusion in a manner tailored to the specific needs of individual Tribes, in consultation with them, and in a manner that sets both the Tribes and the projects up for long term success.
