U. S. Interior Department Will Provide Millions To Help Native Americans Adapt To Climate Change

By Katie Valentine

The federal government is providing $8 million to help native communities in the U.S. plan for the impacts of climate change, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced Tuesday.

Half of the $8 million will go toward tribes’ general efforts to adapt to climate change, and half will go toward efforts focused specifically on coastal issues, such as sea level rise, erosion, and ocean acidification.
