Hoeven Announces CARES Act Funding to Three Affiliated Tribes

BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven, chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs and a member of the Senate Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded $900,000 to the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold. This funding was made available under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act through an Indian Community Development Block Grant, and will allow for the purchase and conversion of a community facility in Halliday in order to provide medical services to prevent and treat COVID-19, as well as allow for renovations to be made to an additional facility in Twin Buttes so that it can serve as an emergency response center.

“This funding will ensure the Three Affiliated Tribes has the proper space needed to provide medical services necessary to treat and respond to the coronavirus disease pandemic,” said Hoeven.
