The Navajo Nation is hosting the leader of the Small Business Administration for her first visit to the largest reservation in the United States.

Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman will meet with Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and other tribal officials on Tuesday. The visit is taking place in Window Rock, Arizona, which serves as the tribe's capital.

According to the SBA, Guzman is slated to discuss how the American Rescue Plan Act, as well as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, can benefit Indian Country. The two laws, which were enacted by Congress as part of President Joe Biden's domestic agenda, include more than $33 billion in investments for tribes and their communities.
