Indian Health Service Capacity To Manage Supplemental $3.5 Billion Allocated to Its Sanitation Facilities Construction Program
The Indian Health Service (IHS) Sanitation Facilities Construction (SFC) Program works in partnership with Tribes to prevent the spread of disease by providing American Indian and Alaska Native homes and communities with essential water supply, sewage disposal, and solid waste disposal facilities. In fiscal year 2021, IHS identified a need of more than $3.4 billion for SFC projects affecting more than 248,000 new and existing homes. To address that need, Congress appropriated $3.5 billion to the SFC Program through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. We will assess IHS's capacity to establish agreements and contracts for administering the supplemental $3.5 billion, and to oversee the construction of projects paid for using that funding.
