The Council of the Cherokee Nation has approved a record $1.52 billion general operating budget for fiscal year 2021, tribal officials announced Friday.

The $1.52 billion budget is considerably higher than the current fiscal year’s $1.16 billion budget which set the previous record, said Josh Newton, deputy executive director of Cherokee Nation Communications.

Nearly 70% of the Cherokee Nation’s general operating budget comes from federal funds, said Julie Hubbard, a tribal spokesperson.
