Tribal Resources

Tribal Resources

Arizona is proudly home to 22 federally recognized Native American tribes. A map of the tribal nations located throughout the state can be found here. Senator Mark Kelly has worked to make sure the needs of Arizona’s tribal communities are addressed in Washington. 

After taking office, he went right to work supporting tribal communities that were hit hard by the pandemic. Senator Kelly shaped the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to include significant resources for improving tribal roadways, increasing access to high-speed internet on Arizona reservations, and fully funding tribal water settlements. He also secured federal funding to open the first long-term care facility on the Navajo Nation. Senator Kelly will continue to work on important tribal priorities in the Senate.
