A recent Arizona Republic article by Lindsey Botts discusses the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (RAWA) and its application both at the state level and on Tribal lands for federally recognized Tribal Nations.
“Conservation advocates and Indigenous leaders are quick to point out that the money from the original Pittman-Robertson act leaves out tribal nations and territories. The tribal grants that are available are piecemeal and inconsistent, and the competitive nature of the process means that many tribes are left without funding.
That would change under HR2773. The measure adds provisions that ensure all states, tribes, territories and the District of Columbia receive federal funding for wildlife conservation and species of greatest conservation need every year…”–Arizona Republic
