Sinema Urges Swift Implementation of the CARES Act to Support Tribal Communities in Arizona

Apr 2, 2020

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema urged the administration to swiftly implement the bipartisan CARES Act law to support Tribal communities in Arizona.
“Critical resources guaranteed by the CARES Act for Tribal communities in Arizona will save lives and help reduce the spread of the coronavirus,” said Sinema.
Sinema, along with a bipartisan and bicameral group of lawmakers stressed to the administration that federal resources should be deployed quickly to Tribal communities while respecting Tribal sovereignty.
The CARES Act—bipartisan legislation that Sinema helped shape, includes over $10 billion in resources for Native communities across the country in response to the coronavirus national crisis.
Sinema has a resources page on her website,, for Arizonans looking for updated information in English and Spanish on the coronavirus.
The U.S. Department of Treasury and Indian Affairs are seeking input from Tribes on developing how the Coronavirus Relief Fund will be allocated to tribal governments. For more information please visit:
