  • American Indians could reap almost $3Billion in stimulus

    By Mary Clare Jalonick
    Washington D.C. (AP)

    American Indians stand to gain almost $3 billion as part of the economic stimulus moving through Congress, money that could help some of the nation’s poorest communities rebuild roads, improve health care and boost employment that has lagged behind the rest of the country for decades.

    The Senate Appropriations Committee on January 27 included $2.8 billion for Indian tribes in its portion of the nearly $900 billion economic stimulus bill, and a House version that was voted on two days later included a similar amount. That includes hundreds of millions of dollars for schools, health clinics, roads, law enforcement and water projects.
