COMMENTARY: Shutdown needs to end soon


January 8, 2019

So much in this region and with our Tribe centers around the federal government. Just for starters, the Bureau of Indian Affairs has a highly visible presence here. Indian Health Service provides a significant chunk of funding for Cherokee Indian Hospital. Housing and Urban Development provides some funding for housing. These are just what impacts the tribe directly.

Any kind of stoppage of funding from any of these programs could create major problems for the tribe as programs could end up scrambling to find new funding sources or just to make ends meet.
