Navajo Nation American Rescue Plan
The Navajo Nation is working to provide information to its constituents. Please find all information related to Navajo Nation ARPA on this page. Information about the Nation's work to implement the recently passed NN Council Resolution CJY 41 21 and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), is included on this page. The ARPA allows the Nation to supplement not supplant existing funding. The Navajo Nation must submit spending plans to the federal government to meet federal guidance and timelines. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.
