Date: Wednesday, January 13, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 PM Eastern Time
The Tribal Self-Governance Advisory Committee (TSGAC), will host a Webinar on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm (ET) on an overview and use of the funding included in the most recent COVID-19 legislation.
On December 21, 2020, Congress passed the most recent bipartisan COVID-19 legislation. The President signed the legislation on December 27, 2020. The Coronavirus relief provisions were part of a larger 5,593-page bill under the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021”
Panelists will summarize the main provisions and funding made available to Tribes and Tribal Organizations under the Act. Topics will include requirements for the $1 billion in designated funding for IHS and Tribally-operated programs, changes to the Provider Relief Fund reporting requirements, new requirements of the Paycheck Protection Program, and availability and terms of payroll tax credits available to Tribes under the Employee Retention Tax Credit and COVID-19 paid leave laws. As always, there will be time for discussion and questions/answers.
