Attached is a memorandum from the Navajo Nation Washington Office outlining the federal government shutdown impacts to the Navajo Nation.

Key points:

During the White House tribal leaders call yesterday afternoon the administration committed to the continued operations of any program directly related to the preservation of health, life and safety.

Most federal employees are currently furloughed.

No federal register notices will be available for the duration of the shutdown.

The NNWO recommends rescheduling any meetings with federal agencies or staff.

Health clinics both IHS run and 638 are operational. Bureau of Indian Education schools (direct, contract and grant) are operational. Social Security checks will continue to be distributed.

Other programs will be operational as long as there are carry-over, alternative funds, emergency distributions from tribal resources, or other resource made available.

Federal agency counter parts for technical assistance or any other questions will be largely unavailable. The long term impacts to backlogs for all federal activity will adversely impact the Navajo Nation.

The Navajo Nation Washington Office will continue to monitor the activity in Congress and advocate the needs of the Navajo people and encourage a timely resolution to the shutdown.
