$90M in Water, WW Funds for Native Groups

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Comment | More

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s (HHS) Indian Health Service (IHS) announced that $90 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds will be invested in improved access to drinking water and wastewater services in the American Indian and Alaska Native communities.

EPA and IHS have identified 95 wastewater and 64 drinking water “shovel-ready” priority projects. The projects exceed the recovery act requirement that 20% of funds be used for green infrastructure, water and energy efficiency improvements, and other environmentally innovative projects.

According to 2007 data from IHS, approximately 10% of tribal homes do not have safe drinking water or wastewater disposal facilities, compared with 0.6% of non-native U.S. homes, as measured in 2005.
