Otoe-Missouria Tribe awarded over $380K for new COVID-19 Response Center


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded over $380K to the Otoe-Missouria Tribe for a new COVID-19 Response Center at the Tribal Complex. Once completed, the tribe will be able to screen and test members, employees and community members for COVID-19.

The grant was a part of $2.8 million awarded to Oklahoma tribes as a part of the HUD’s Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) Imminent Threat Program, which provides the funding to help address problems that pose an imminent threat to public health or safety of tribal residents.
