MINNEAPOLIS — The Center for Indian Country Development at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis is asking tribal governments and their enterprises to answer a survey about how COVID-19 is affecting them.    

The brief survey asks about the impact of COVID-19 on employment, revenues and the level of government services as a result of current or anticipated revenue decreases. The deadline to complete the survey is 7 p.m. (CDT) on Friday, Sept. 18.  

The survey takes an estimated five minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous and only aggregated data will be shared publicly, according to Casey Lozar, vice president and director of the Center for Indian Country Development.

The Minneapolis Fed established the Center for Indian Country Development in 2015 to address disparities in economic outcomes in Indian Country.

It's December 2020, can you help...

We’re asking our readers for a little help as 2020 draws to a close.  If you can afford it, we hope you’ll consider a one-time donation of $5 or more to help fund our Indigenous-led coverage of important news throughout Indian Country.  Covering the news hasn’t been easy this year, but we believe it’s been critically important given the changes and upheaval we’ve experienced — from COVID-19 and the 2020 Census, to issues of racial equity, efforts to suppress the Native vote, and far too many stories of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls.

Because we believe everyone in Indian Country deserves equal access to news and commentary pertaining to them, their relatives and their communities, the story you’ve just finished was free — and we want to keep it that way, for all readers. But we hope it inspires you to make a gift to Native News Online so that we can continue publishing more stories that make a difference to Native people, whether they live on or off the reservation. Your donation will help us keep producing quality journalism and elevating Indigenous voices. Any contribution of any amount, big or small, gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
