Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) | Program Updates

Tlingit & Haida’s Community-Directed ARPA program empowers local Tlingit & Haida Community Councils (or Delegates if there is no active Community Council) to provide meaningful local response to the many economic hardships created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this program, local Tlingit & Haida Community Councils and Delegates prioritize how to best utilize these funds and identify supplemental relief programs for Tlingit & Haida to create and administer consistent with the law and the United States Department of Treasury’s guidance.
