Interior secretary announces $120 million more for tribal climate resiliency
Story by Demetrios Sanders • 12h


WAYLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland visited West Michigan Tuesday to announce new funding for tribal communities to combat problems linked to climate change.

“Tribes are not a monolith and neither are the challenges that we face,” Haaland said while visiting the Gun Lake Tribe in Shelbyville. “Whether it’s wildfire, drought, the increasing threat of rising seas, coastal erosion, storm surges or devastation from other extreme weather events, our focus must be on bolstering tribal climate resilience.

She announced $120 million in new federal funding to help tribes plan and implement projects that tackle climate-related threats to their homelands. Those can range from habitat restoration to ocean and coastal management to community-led relocation.

“As we deploy these resources at record pace, we’re putting the decision making in the hands of tribes to do what is best for communities,” Haaland said.

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
