The Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and NOAA Administrator, Dr. Richard W. Spinrad, invites you to a virtual session for Tribal Nations to engage in sustained dialogue about the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) funding. Please see the Dear Tribal Leader Letter for more details.

Background:  The IRA provides $2.6 billion in funds to NOAA to invest in coastal communities and climate resilience. Specifically, IRA directs NOAA to further these purposes: “the conservation, restoration, and protection of coastal and marine habitats, resources, Pacific salmon and other marine fisheries, to enable coastal communities to prepare for extreme storms and other changing climate conditions, and for projects that support natural resources that sustain coastal and marine resource dependent communities, marine fishery and marine mammal stock assessments.”

(Section 40001). Tribal Governments are eligible recipients.
