The Winnebago and Iowa tribes in Nebraska will be among those getting a cut of $90 million in federal stimulus money aimed at improving access to drinking water and wastewater services. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service's Indian Health Service made the announcement Wednesday. The money is going to American Indian and Alaska Native communities in hopes of fixing aging infrastructure, focusing on green solutions and creating jobs.
