Specifically, enrollment data will be a primary data source to inform Indian Affairs’ allocation of $900 million in assistance to Tribal nations, as well as $19 billion to be distributed by the Department of the Treasury. Timely collection is especially critical as Treasury must allocate their funding within 60 days of enactment of the American Rescue Plan. Title of Collection: Tribal Enrollment Count.
