Self-Certification for ARPA Assistance and Tribal Accountability Notification

U.S. Treasury guidance specifically requires that all Tribal entities that implement Cash transfers ensure that cash transfers respond to the negative impact of the pandemic and are reasonably proportional to the negative economic impact they are intended to address. Cash transfers grossly in excess of the amount needed to address the negative economic impact identified by the recipient would not be considered to be a response to the COVID-19 public health emergency or its negative impacts and would be outside the scope of eligible uses under section *602(c)(1)(A) and 603(c)(1)(A) of the Social Security Act and could be subject to repayment. 

*Sections 602(c)(1)(A), 603(c)(1) of the Act.
