Now that Tribes have received their American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, they need to figure out how best to spend it in the time allotted. Stash it away in the bank or invest it? And what about inflation and FDIC insurance?
With so many factors to consider, Tribes looking for helpful guidance can tune into this complimentary, 30-minute webinar from REDW Wealth Principal Paul Madrid.
Paul provides a high-level overview of the unique issues your Tribe may be facing with its ARPA and CARES Act funds; thoughts on why and when you may want to invest the money to maximize the benefit to your Tribe; and discuss your investment options and restrictions.

Please refer toÂ Treasury Guidance as of July 19, 2021.
