Preparing for the Next Government ShutdownThe federal government has shut down three times over the past five years with the most recent shutdown lasting over one month. The impacts of a shutdown are devastating for tribal governments, forcing many to scramble to continue mandatory services without funds for life-saving health care and other needed services. Beyond the member/citizen services, external relationships suffer as well, with debt obligations and payments to vendors stymied. The threat of future shutdowns is now something that is more likely to occur than not; meaning tribes need to build a future shutdown into their budgets, operational funds, and sinking funds for loans. Join our facilitated discussion to hear what some tribes are doing to prepare and manage this relatively new political risk.
