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.
