The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law on March 27, 2020. Under this Act, The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) received $12.4 billion in funding, with $300 million allocated to Public and Indian Housing (PIH) to respond to the impact COVID-19 has had on tribes.

In this four-hour session, we will discuss practical strategies and solutions to utilize the funds under the CARES Act, understand how Indian tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Authorities (TDHEs) can to respond to the pandemic and go over the different types of grants available to tribes.
