Congress provides tribal college aid in COVID-19 response


WASHINGTON – On March 26, the U.S. Senate passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, which allocated urgently needed funding to tribal colleges and universities or TCUs.

While important in addressing immediate, short-term needs, the American Indian Higher Education Consortium states the funding falls far short of the estimated $140 million that TCUs and their students need to adequately and equitably address the post-secondary, workforce development, research and community-support challenges facing Indian Country as COVID-19 sweeps across the country.
