Welcome to the ARRA webpage for the White Mountain Apache Tribe

In the fall of 2009, the White Mountain Apache Tribe (WMAT) was awarded approximately $7.6 million dollars from the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 stimulus funding through the USDA, Forest Service Southwestern Region.

Here is brief description about the projects.

To read a full description go to the projects page:

  • WMAT TRIBAL FOREST PROTECTION ACT (TFPA) PROJECT:

The WMAT TFPA project evolved from what is now known as the “Tribal Protection Forest Protection Act of 2004” legislation which authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Interior to enter into agreements or contracts with Indian tribes that meet certain criteria to carry out projects to protect Indian forest land.

  • WMAT NATIVE PLANT NURSERY PROJECT

Up until December of 2009, when a propane explosion at the McNary Greenhouse caused considerable damage to the existing nursery structures, the WMAT had access to seedlings, as well as riparian and watershed plants to contribute to their reforestation and watershed restoration needs. Therefore on October 22, 2009, the WMAT received $2,243,000.00 to reconstruct a Native Plant Nursery from the U.S. Forest Service.
