The tribe has been given $1.1 million in loans and grants to enlarge its health center and improve the reservation sewer system. The health center has received a $654,000 loan to improve the health center and $500,000 in grant money for public works from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development agency. Health center Director Liz Neptune said the loan money will be used to build a 1,800-square-foot addition to the health center. "It will more than double our examining room space, add a trauma room, larger medical records office and increase office space," she said.
