ATTENTION SHAWNEE TRIBAL CITIZENS:
As part of the CARES Act, HUD has released its ICDBG-CARES grants to assist Tribal communities to prevent, prepare and respond to COVID-19. Shawnee Tribe staff has been working diligently throughout the pandemic to secure as much funding as possible to support our Shawnee Citizens. The Shawnee Tribe is submitting the ICDBG-CARES grant to construct an Emergency Services Facility to establish an Infectious Diseases Command Center.
We will be applying for up to $900,000.00, in accordance with the IHBG formula as the award ceiling available to the Shawnee Tribe. The funding from the Imminent Threat Grant, under strict guidelines to be eligible for, is to be utilized in “Preventing, Preparing for, and Responding to COVID-19”. The Tribe feels the best use of these funds to have the most significant impact to the surrounding community is to construct an Emergency Services Facility to establish an Infectious Diseases Command Center.
The Tribe welcomes feedback and comments from our Tribal Citizens concerning this grant solicitation and project. Please send all feedback and comments to Cassie Harper, Tribal Administrator via email or mail for documentation purposes:
