We do record this. So we do sure with membership after. So I will go through the slides and ask for questions at the end, Madam without work for you and Jeff and Jeff, welcome. We appreciate you having me here. My blog. I served as vice president AFN. So thank you for being here. Sure.
Thanks for having us.
Okay, I guess we'll just we'll go ahead and get started. So thank you welcome. Adam and Jeff and Mick for being here today. This is our treasury capital programs workshop. We have this workshops hosted by AFN through an Andrea program and NTI as well as partners from Treasury. This workshop will be recorded and shared with a membership after so will will our business know when that recordings available? And please Okay, share it with your membership and your organization's. With that said, I'd like to introduce Adam and hand, hand the floor over to him to go through dispensation. So thank you, Adam, and welcome again, and really appreciate your perspective. AFN and your past other workshops. So thank you for being here.
Absolutely been and, you know, on behalf of NTIA I do want to thank AFN for the partnership is always to be able to work through provide updates and just be a good place for everybody to convene and provide information that's out there to help support the needs in Indian country. So thank you as always for being a good partner. Miriam mucha she chopped gnome Adam Geisler, normally known I put on with him. Ah, ish. My name is Adam Geisler, I'm a citizen of the La Jolla band was Sangyo Indians located here also on the west coast but a little further south where I reside on my on my reservation of the biome which and people on here in North East San Diego County. And with me today I'm joined by Mr. Nicholas Courtney, who's a member of the mocaa tribe Nick, if you would mind go ahead and introduce yourself as well.
Thank you, Adam Kousaka. My name is Nicholas Courtney. That said I'm a member of the MCI tribe, and currently live and reside in our nation's capitol here in Washington DC, which sits on traditional Piscataway lands. I am a broadband program specialist for NTIA and really grateful to be here with you all today.
Awesome, thanks deck,
and then we're gonna have Jeff introduce himself here at the top of the Treasury slides once we get over to those in just a moment, so, you know, again, thank you for the opportunity to connect today. We wanted to just do a couple things with our time you know, the first is give an update about the status of where we are with the tribal broadband connectivity program. And then also talk about an opportunity related to Treasury where there's some additional funding as we know a lot of you are working in consortiums. This may be a point of opportunity for you or if you're looking at something as an individual village to apply for as well. So we'll be highlighting that bucket of money. I will go and go to the next slide next. Thanks. So, um, you know, first off, or I guess not first, but secondly, I would like to say thank you to all of you who participated in this round of applications for the tribal broadband connectivity program. NOFO you know, while we recognize that NTIA there is there is obviously a lot of need out there, your participation has actually been helpful in being able to articulate and describe the specific needs that are coming out of Alaska in particular, and the types of solutions that you're looking at in a way that meets your needs. And so that's really important that we not lose sight of that as one of the the benefits or outcomes I should say, of the TBC program application process. Now with that being said, what we wanted to do is also recognize that we've actually received quite a few applications from across Indian country from across the Alaska Native Village across Alaska, and the reality is the need and the demand is real. And here at NTIA while we have the billion dollar appropriation, we also recognize that there's a lot more need than is out there. So before we go too far, go back when Nick, I just want to quickly recap how we got to today. As many of you know, we went through an extensive tribal consultation process where we held three government to government consultations with tribal nations from across the country. And that consultation process was was over the course of three days in 13 hours we've received over 50 different comments and specific dialogue from every respective tribal nation that was able to attend and wanted to have that conversation with us. And without you we wouldn't have been able to develop the NOFO that we did. So thank you again for your participation in that as a result of the feedback that we collected from from all of you during the consultation process. We then use that to build the NOFO and put that out to put that out when the NOFO hit the street part of what our job entailed. And I mean that with a with a good way, um was the ability to then work with all of you in terms of how we can do technical assistance and outreach and again, I want to thank AFN for the partnership and providing a platform within Alaska to convene the various interests including the villages the village corporations, the regional nonprofits and the regional corporations in a way that we can get the information out, you know, efficiently. And so as part of that process, we also engaged as we were doing this outreach and technical assistance in 50 different engagements across the country as a whole. In addition to hosting 10, NTIA hosted webinars, where we really got into different elements related to the application, where we talked about how to complete the application. We talked about permitting and a whole host of things as well as we fielded questions live at the end of every one of those webinars. Another byproduct of the webinars, as many of you know is the FAQs that have been posted now on the NCI website and were posted during the process. And I just wanted to point your attention that we did add one more FAQ related to the curing process, which my colleague Nick is going to cover in just a few moments but again, I want to thank you so much for your continued support and collaboration in this process as we really do see this as a partnership in the way that we're trying to address the digital divide across the nation and in in tribal and non tribal lands. We'll go and go to the next slide. So as I mentioned, you know, this process, your feedback and the engagements has yielded
quite a bit of interest. And to the point where I'm looking at the notes here. There's an update, we have actually received over 300 applications for the program, which I think again, only underscores the need that is out there in terms of meeting or in terms of addressing the digital divide issues that many tribes are experiencing from across from across the country. As part of that request. Again, we have $1 billion dollars it's been appropriated to the program, however, we have over $5 billion in ask and so we have a tough road ahead of us in terms of how we're going to fund these these projects, recognizing that, you know, we obviously don't have all the money that is needed based upon this initial understanding of need through the application process. So now that now that we have received your applications, we are going to start jumping into a part in a process of curing the applications and a number of you have received phone calls from either myself a member of our team, and more than likely you have received an email from the TBC email@example.com email box and that is the actual official email box that we're using for correspondence. Moving through the the different review processes of the application which Nick will cover in a minute. So one thing that I just wanted to add is to make sure that as we're talking about when when or what or why do we may be reaching out. We want to keep in mind that that if we're reaching out we're likely wanting to understand your project narrative, your indirect cost rate, the budget narrative or your budget justification, or then also maybe if you completed the forms correctly or incorrectly. And so again, keep an eye out for emails coming from us in the event that we need clarification or we need to cure a component of the application. Our team will be reaching out. If we reached out to you and you did and you sent in the information and you didn't hear anything back from us. No news is good news. We are we are not sending emails back to applicant saying thank you everything is perfect or we received everything and the package is great. Because obviously we can't be sending that type of correspondence while we're going through the process. So I just wanted to remind everybody or point out if you haven't heard, that if we don't ask for additional information that the assumption that you can take is that we have what we need in order to move it forward into the next phase. So with that, I'm going to go ahead and turn it over to Nick to carry the last portion here. Good.
Thank you, Adam. So as we discussed, as Adam mentioned, our application did close and we're currently in the our application review process. And this process that we have is really divided up into three stages. The first is an administer initial administrative and eligibility review. We're determining and ensuring that an applicant is an eligible applicant, that their application is complete. And if if we have any questions, our NOFO states that you have seven calendar days to cure any application deficient deficiencies. This can include as Adam mentioned that correct ensuring that we have the correct SF four to four forms that we have a proof of eligible entity, and so forth. The second stage is what we're calling our merit review stage where we have two objective reviewers that will score the applications based on the evaluation criteria section E dot one of our NOFO if there are any deficiencies within this stage of the application, you would receive an email from TB firstname.lastname@example.org And you'd have 14 calendar days to cure any application deficiencies. I'll note that one thing that we have committed ourselves to is that if you have questions based on any of these carrying items, and if you have received in an email, and you'd like to discuss that over the phone with us, our team is always happy to share a dialogue with you and our contact information can be found on NTI A's tribal broadband connectivity website or microsite. The third stage is a programmatic review, and that is where NTIA will review applications determined to be qualified for funding during the merit review score as per our NOFO an app an eligible entity must have at least a score of 70 points to move forward towards programmatic review here and during this stage, an eligible applicant will have 10 calendar days to cure any application deficiencies and again, our team is more than happy to hop on the phone. We've been doing for the last month or so on any questions to ensure that you're putting forward the correct information when you are resubmitting certain information. With that we have some upcoming dates that we wanted to share with you all and that is that NTI expects to complete a true view selection of successful applicants and award processing by late November of 2021. And that we expect the earliest start date for TBC P awards to be in that mid December 2021 timeframe. And with that, we also wanted to share news on another item not related to the TBC P program in which I will defer back to Adam for that. Adam the floor is yours.
Thanks Nick. So the well it is related to the TV CEP program, but that this particular topic and it has to do with how we're going to be leveraging the tower construction notification system. Some of you may have heard the acronym TC NS that is managed by the Federal Communications Commission the FCC, NTIA has an MOU with the FCC in order to leverage the tower notification tower construction notification system as a way to do notification for 106 section 106 historic preservation compliance. And so a number of you tribal leaders will be receiving a deer Tribal Leader Letter in the in in the mail or an email I signed by both the FCC and leadership at NTIA. Again just making you aware that this is the process that we are going to be leveraging. A couple things to keep in mind. When you do receive the letter. One of the things that we're asking everybody is to update your point of contact information and make sure that it's accurate within the tcns system. It's important because within the tcns system, you are actually able to designate how you want correspondence to be coming to you whether it's an email or in paper form. And so again, if that is something that you are going to be tracking or you haven't been in the system in a little while we're encouraging everybody to go back into the tcns system and please update your point of contact information and the way in which you want to be notified. The other elements of this is that we did in the deer Tribal Leader Letter. We are soliciting any feedback or comments related to the approach in the process? Should you have any and there's a three week timeframe associated with that. So we just wanted to cover that because we are using the tcns system for the tribal broadband connectivity program, the infrastructure program and the connecting minority communities program which are all the pots of funds that NTIA is currently operating for grant programs related to broadband. So with that, we can go ahead and we'll go to the next slide. And we can pause for a quick moment and if there are questions, we're happy to feel the questions before we jump in. And we'll we do the quick introduction with our friends over at Treasury and they can explain their project application, excuse me their application package and the amount of money. So any questions?
Hey, Adam, this is Ben, I think why don't we go ahead with Treasury and Jeff may get hold questions till the end. I think some of our navigators might have questions, I think for flow purposes as you know, I guess we'll continue on.
Not a problem. Well, yeah. So one of the goals that we have at NTIA is to try to facilitate relationships where we can across government and help bridge relationships with our other federal partners, where especially where broadband funding is, isn't available activity or an eligible activity. And so, today, we're also joined with our friends over at Treasury to talk about a separate distinct pot of funds with its own application process separate from ours at NTIA and so now I'd like to turn it over to Mr. Jeff Searle to explain a little bit more in detail about the capital project fund and how the application process works. already.
Thank you, Adam. And thanks, Nick. Good to be with you all today. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to present on the Coronavirus capital projects fund which is being administered by the US Department of Treasury using funds that were allocated and appropriated in the American rescue plan act. Treasury launched the program on September 20 2021. By releasing our guidance to recipient governments in this guidance provides key details on the use of funds and the application process. Today I'm just going to cover a broad overview of the guidance and the process outline key dates and milestones and answer any questions that you may have before we get started. I just a quick disclaimer, make sure that you visit our website and read through the guidance. What I'm going to give you today is as I mentioned just very high level overview. The guide I'll provide a link in the chat to our website and then on the last slide my contact information and our website will address will be there for you all so that you can access that information there. Next slide please. The capital projects fund offers a new source of funding travel governments can have access for spending on broadband infrastructure projects, among other uses. The capital projects fund makes 100 million dollars available to tribal governments to invest in capital projects to aid in their response to the public health emergency in accordance with the methodology required by the statute. Approximately $167,000 has been allocated to each tribal government. The Treasury consulted with recipients and stakeholders including over 300 tribal leaders to hear about their needs. This guidance released is a product of these dialogues. On October 1 Treasury began accepting applications from tribal governments. The three main goals of the program are first recovery. The funds provide eligible governments with this substantial infusion of resources to meet their capital investment needs as part of the COVID-19 recovery. Second, equity. This fund aims to address inequities in access to critical services with a specific focus on making funding available to serve communities where vulnerabilities were exacerbated by the public health crisis and third lasting infrastructure. This fund aims to contribute to the administration's goal to provide modern infrastructure necessary to access critical services, including broadband access. Next slide please. Let me give you a high level overview of the eligible uses of these ramp funds. So we tried to simplify the process for tribal governments. And we created what we call presumptively eligible uses and when you have a chance to go in and see the application, you'll see that we have outlined these presumptively eligible uses and you simply check a box and provide a short narrative on how you plan to use these funds. And for these purposes, and then we'll just simply expedite the payments to you. So I'll start off with the first presumptively eligible use, which is investments in high quality and affordable broadband projects. So robbing infrastructure investments that meet the standards that will be productively eligible for funding in this would include, for example, in we would want to make sure that the project does include covering areas or funding in areas where there is a lack of access to reliable wireline speeds of 100 megabits per second download 20 megabits per second upload, although tribal governments do have broad flexibility to determine communities with a critical need for this project. So you may have a community that meets those standards, but there are other factors, like affordability or cost that that prohibit the folks in the community from accessing these services.
Now, we know that most tribal lands, this standard can be fairly easily met. The second criteria that we have is that the whatever networks that are designed using these funds should reliably deliver speeds of 100 100 symmetrical so 100 Up 100 Down symmetrical, unless impractical, and if it's impractical you just note that in your application and tell us why. And then give us an idea of of what the network that you're designing will will do and what will deliver. The second presumptively eligible use is the purchaser installation of digital connectivity technologies like laptops, desktop computers, tablets, as well as Wi Fi equipment. For example, a tribal government could purchase laptops that could be loaned out to the community to be able to access the internet for work, education and health monitoring activities. Third, the construction or improvement of multipurpose community facilities so long as these buildings are designed to jointly indirectly enable communities to engage in work, education and health monitoring. So again, anytime you're going to request the funds and propose a project, just make sure that whatever that project is it meets those three criteria of work, education and health monitoring, and that would include remote options, and that's why broadband is a presumptively eligible use. However, we know that tribal governments have many needs so we want to provide some flexibility for the use of funds. So tribal governments may propose other uses of funds that will be reviewed on a case by case basis and must demonstrate that the proposed project meets all the criteria that's outlined in the guidance some of which I've just mentioned here. Now, keep in mind case by case reviews are not part of the simplified application process being the presumptively eligible uses on the left hand side of your slide there. And we'll take a little bit of time to to go through those and evaluate those to make sure make sure that you meet the statutory criteria and then meet all the requirements. Of the guidance before we approve those funds. Now, just real quickly, I'll mention ineligible uses presumptively ineligible uses would be highways, bridges, transit systems, imports, there's a lot of other funding for that plus, those types of projects. Don't meet the statutory criteria of work in education, health monitoring, including remote options. Again, I encourage you to go read our guidance on our website. It's a fairly short document as far as federal publications go. So I think that you'll find it an easy read. And if you have any questions, again, you can reach out to us and we can help you with those. Now next slide, please. I'm going to just briefly go over the application process for you. Because as I mentioned, we tried to streamline this process for tribal governments. Considering the number, the amount of funds and how far they'll go. We wanted to make sure that the application wasn't burdensome and that we were getting the money out to tribal governments as quickly as possible. So the bad patient is going to ask you for some basic information about your tribal government funds, transfers, sign award agreements, information about the intended use of the funds in a certification that the all the information is correct and true. That way we can verify your eligibility then if you've logged on to id.me, that's the that's the platform that Treasury Department's using. And if you've logged on to that, or other Treasury programs, then then this will look very familiar to you and you can use the same login and password to access our application. Now, a few important reminders again, I mentioned that the application window opened October 1, you can access your application now. All Applications are due June 1 2022 to June 1 2022.
A couple other things to note here, tribal governments are able to apply jointly so you can partner up. You can apply through a consortium, an existing Consortium for example, if you'd like. We just want to make sure that you're authorizing that consortium to act on your behalf. So we just need a documentation. It could be a letter signed by the tribal leader or someone with the legal authority to to sign a letter that says yep, we're part of the consortium, and we're going to team up with these folks. And they're going to manage this money for us. Now, Adam mentioned the partnership that we've developed with NTIA and his group. And just wanted to say that say thank you again for that this has been this has been great and we've been able to reach out and connect with tribal governments in tribal associations across the country with Adams help we do at Treasury now have a tribal coordinator. And so we encourage you to utilize that office. Also if you need more information, and I'll have that address here at the end of the presentation. And other resources for you on our website include a recording of a webinar that we held on October 6 and the PowerPoint presentation. And then the next couple of days we'll have the actual PDF of the application itself. So you can go in and see what the questions were asking.
Next slide please.
So in closing, I just want to highlight the the several ways that the Treasury team is available to provide support to you. Again, our website is here. Again, I'll type it in in the chat. And then here's our email and you can reach out to us via email with specific questions. That's all I have for my presentation. Happy to answer any questions. Thank you again for having me this afternoon.
I think Adam and thank you, Jeff. I do know we have a number of our EVA navigators in the room. And it's okay with you too. I know if I could ask April or or anyone else on line having questions.
Yes, thank you and some of it may not be exactly question first. I would like to really think the Treasury I thought that though the work that Fn is has done with the Treasury has been great. I can't tell you how important it is to have the tribal coordinators because they've actually been out in Indian Country. Your tribal coordinator had been to Alaska two or three times and just having exposure to the context and the the day to day experience that we have is so helpful and I do appreciate that. So if I could just recount a few of the experiences I've had over the past week in ARM suppose it's part of the cure process for the application where we were asked to get tribal authorization because of the overlapping applications if and was asked to, to gather up tribal reauthorization or reconfirmation. Letters from all of the tribes. We had exactly four working days after to do this and it's a hefty job. For a number of reasons. You're all well aware of the geographical distances we have to span we have several navigators I personally responsible for contacting about 40 tribes. Each telephone call requires numerous follow up emails and the telephone calls themselves once I finally get somebody on the phone can take up to a half hour to 45 minutes each while I explain what it is we're doing. And I know that three of our villages there was a huge storm down there. I've had other villages, I mean, that knocked out their phone systems. I've had other villages where the phone systems have just not been working for several months. I've had you know, folks who I mean, many, many offices are closed down because of COVID. So I've had to call the corporations, the cities, the the neighbors, the guy on the runway, anybody who might have a mobile phone who can run over find a tribal chief, get the council to look at the letter and authorize it and then have a thing since the broadband is spotty people's equipment really is
trying to be polite here is where their printers are not working. So what our work around is, you know, take a picture of your authorization letter and send it to me by your phone and we can turn that in. And so folks have done that. We've also I've got on the phone with somebody where this certainly the this tribal use and adoption is going to be wonderful for their village but they don't quite understand. You know, when it's coming and why is this such a great thing because they are being petitioned by a lot of people, but they don't know specifically the carriers to come on board their applications and some of this is highly technical, and it's two or three years down the line. So you know there is some reservation about how legitimate it all is. And you know, I've had conversations with Well, I don't want to reply. I mean, we don't want to apply for anything else we can't keep up with reporting for the things we've asked for in the reporting for some agencies is required to be on, you know, electronic, I even had somebody ID from the Commerce Department that had said, Well, if they can't apply electronically then you know, they can't apply. It was it was very black and white and that defeats the whole purpose of this whole exercise. Those are just some of our concerns as we try to turn this around. And so I'm happy to see you know that there is the the Treasury has this program, but I have to ask how much reporting and require compliance is required. If you are going to require it, please this sweep asked Adam take three I mean, give the alter the default for people to report through the mail. If they can't get their broadband is not working to kick into computer working. And, you know, not that your agencies have any control over this but for some of these smaller needy tribes, excuse me. Block grants are going to be the most efficient way to for them to deploy some of these funds. That's all I can think of right this minute. Thank you, John.
Yeah, April, if I could just respond and I think most of those comments were directed to the NTIA program. You know, so just to make sure we're all really clear Jeff's program is different than NTIA. When it's actually a completely different department. It's over at the Department of Treasury. We're within the department, NTIA is within the Department of Commerce, and that he has a completely separate application process and actually separate guidelines and so I would really encourage all of you to go take a look at the guidelines that they have. I saw some of the questions in the chat around I guess I wasn't sure if it was toward towards us or towards treasury, but I would really encourage you guys to go take a look at the at the guidance that they have on the Treasury website. As it relates to the comments that you made. Earlier we you know, obviously we are in receipt of AF NS letters part of the the curing process and recognizing this as more of a public forum you know, I'm not going to make too many comments related to that. But as always, we appreciate the feedback in and we'll always encourage any any of the tribal nations villages that we're working with to express themselves and what they believe. I hope we never come off as wanting, wanting anything other than to make sure that you're able to express what you need or what you feel to be correct. But with that being said, you know, as we mentioned earlier, the curing process, you know, we are now going into almost 60 days since the close of the application window. And, you know, whether we're asking for budget narrative clarification or you know, lists of funded and unfunded, funded participants and unfunded collaborators and starting to get gain clarification around that is really part of a part of our ability to be able to help understand who's all comprised in an application and, you know, obviously, in Alaska, there's just a lot of need and a lot of interest. And so we want to be respectful of that. But we also want to make sure that we're being cognizant of it, everybody that's in this application process, as we are working to, to, to meet the needs that have been described. So, um, you know, while I recognize I don't want you to feel like I'm putting you off and Miss Ferguson, but at the same time, you know, obviously we're receiving a letter and and we'll work towards a response here in the near future.
Excuse me. Um, no, Mr. Geisler? I didn't feel like that at all. I just, this has been a long week and I've it's all built up and I just wanted to personally make you aware of some of my concerns. It's not an implied criticism. It's because we're all in this together to make the process better. So I appreciate you're dealing not with just the you're dealing with all of Alaska and all the lower 48 It's a big load and we want to make sure everybody's covered. I totally understand that.
will appreciate that.
Panama just mentioned on our program, just because Miss Ferguson had asked about clients reporting guidance. We should have that out in the coming weeks. But I can tell you, we have tried to streamline in as much as we can. In fact, just between you and I both know this is a public forum right? I shouldn't say anything outside of school. Okay. Well, this this know that we completely understand working with them. Sure. We we have come to appreciate some of how even some of the what we would consider simple requests can be a burden to some of the smaller tribes. So we're really trying to streamline this. I will tell you that they'll for tribal governments in our program, it's a once a year reporting, so it's going to be annual, and I think it's because it's going to be for a limited number of years for about five years or so. So that should give you an idea. And and I'm Hope, hoping that that will be helpful to tribes as they as they take advantage of our program. Thank you.
Thank you, Jeff. And thank you, Adam, and April, thank you for your comments. We know we really do appreciate you know NTI being here and Jeff from Treasury. You know if you have any materials Jeff, you want to share with our membership. Please feel free to share them to send to us you know we could distribute with this video. I'm also keep us updated on any updates you have. We're happy to share that with our membership. Adam same with you. You know we have we have our number so you can call me anytime we want. So with that said thank you. Are there any other questions from the people from from AMD online?
Hey, Ben Yes, sir. This is Nelson. Sir. It's pretty exciting that drop ban, deployment of broadband maybe have actually occurring in rural rural Alaska. One concern is how do you deal with those communities? Who did not submit an application because they have no access to broadband. Or have no ways of submitting their requests through internet. Thank you.
Thank you, sir. Adam or Jeff.
Yeah, on the tribal broad Good Good to hear your voice. Nelson and happy to see on the call today with regards to the tribal broadband connectivity program, while we preferred a online submission through grants.gov we also open the door up for those that needed to send it in through post mail. And so we actually had a process in the NOFO. For villages that may be in a situation as you described, right? I mean, we hear you loud and clear. The whole point of this program is that most tribes, which we now do not have broadband access, and we talked about that quite a bit in the development of the NOFO and so on, we did ensure that there was a process in the NOFO that allowed tribes to submit paper copy of their application through post mail to us. And so we did have that window open and I will say that of the of the over 300 applications that we have received. That actually encompasses about three quarters of the tribes in the nation. So I got to I got to speak loosely here a little bit because I need to get clearance to give you guys the full number but it still took on a pretty good representation of of the country. We still have more work to do. And just in full disclosure, not only did we run into tribes and had submission challenges with broadband access, I mean, we also had to make some tough decisions with some that were impacted by natural disasters as well and so I hear you loud and clear on. On I think your question was, how do we work with those that didn't have an opportunity to submit during the window while it was open and unfortunately, I I do have to carry the bad news in this position, even if I don't enjoy saying it. But we're at a point now where if if a tribe or a village or an eligible entity missed the application window, that window is closed at the moment. And so I will say, and there's no guarantee obviously I'm sure you're all watching what's happening on the hill just as much as we are. We are hopeful that there will be additional funds appropriated in the infrastructure bill. There's no guarantee there yet but you know, we're hopeful that there may be a second opportunity to open up a window into the future, but we'll see what happens but I just want to be direct with you Nelson that that's, that's where we're at the window has been closed and and we aren't going to be accepting any additional applications at this time.
Adam, thank you very much and I appreciate your forthrightness whether good or bad because if we if we don't hear one way or the other than we would, we would know what's out there and what's not there. And I can thank you very much. Absolutely.
Thank you, Adam. Thank you, Nelson. No, before we wrap up today, again, thank you for being here today. We will have this workshop recorded and shared the membership I'll share with you before we do that. Jeff, do you mind going back to the email with the tribal corner office at Treasury so people have that before we head off? Yes, perfect.
So at the at the bottom of the slide is our Tribal Affairs Office to tribal email@example.com. Fatima Abbas is our coordinator and our point of contact.
