Infrastructure Investment and Jobs bipartisan law led by Sinema and shaped by Kelly invests into Arizona tribal sanitation infrastructure

Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - About $105 million will be invested into Arizona's tribal communities for critical sanitation projects.

The $105 million will be for Tier 1 project constructions that are considered "shovel-ready" where the project planning is complete with engineer design activities set for sanitation facilities, contract documents, and contract plans and specifications.

“We consistently hear from tribes across our state about the need to implement, modernize, and strengthen sanitation facilities on tribal lands. This much-needed investment will fund critical construction and upgrades to Arizona tribes’ sanitation infrastructure,” said Sinema.

This investment is a part of the $3.5 billion funding Senators Sinema and Kelly secured for the Indian Health Service sanitation infrastructure for the next five years.

“I’ve seen firsthand the incredible impact of improved water and wastewater systems on tribal communities, and now, thanks to our bipartisan infrastructure law, even more families and businesses can benefit from investments in these shovel-ready projects,” says Kelly.

A part of the $3.5 billion funding will be used for tribal water and sanitation infrastructure including $2 billion for high-speed broadband in tribal communities and $2.5 billion for completely all current authorized Indian Water Rights Settlements.
