Public Notice: Request for Extension for ICDBG-ARP Grant Award Number: 22-RP-02-10670

To Whom It May Concern:

This is notice that the Native Village of Napaimute is applying for an extension for ICDBG-ARP Grant Award Number: 22-RP-02-10670.
The original grant period ends 12/31/23.

Low water in the Kuskokwim River in October prevented barge delivery of the completed starter home to its final destination at Napaimute. An extension to this grant is necessary to allow for barge delivery early in the summer of 2024.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Napaimute Traditional Council Office at (907) 545-2877 or by email:

Thank you.

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.
