WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — The 25th Navajo Nation Council will convene for a special session on March 26, 2024, at 10 am (MDT) at the Navajo Nation Council Chamber in Window Rock, Ariz., to consider Legislation No. 0067-24 to comply with the U.S. Treasury’s obligation deadlines and Legislation No. 0020-24, approving the almost $1 million from the Unreserved, Undesignated Fund Balance for the Navajo Election Administration for its expenses in preparation for the 2024 Navajo Nation elections.

Resolution No. CJY-41-21, Section Seven, established that Navajo Nation Fiscal Recovery Funding allocated for central support services and regulatory services will automatically revert to the NNFRF if not expended by March 31.

The U.S. Treasury’s Nov. 9 Interim Final Rule on Obligation of FRF, authorized the use and expenditure of FRF for personnel costs and other operating costs after the obligation deadline (Dec. 31) when the use and expenditure are related to compliance with federal laws, regulations, and the funding agreement.

To ensure that the Navajo Nation takes full advantage of all opportunities to expend NNFRF on costs deemed FRF eligible under U.S. Treasury rules and guidance, the 25th Navajo Nation Council will consider amending CHY-41-21 to comply with the U.S. Treasury’s rules and guidance, including the obligation and expenditure deadlines.

The March 26 special session will be live streamed on the Council’s YouTube channel at: https://youtube.com/@NavajoNationCouncil?si=yCPelj7rJl6GFPLt.
