Treasury to begin distributing virus relief money to tribes

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — The U.S. Treasury Department said Tuesday that it will begin doling out billions to help tribes respond and recover from the coronavirus more than a week after a congressional deadline and after being sued over who is eligible for the money.

The $2.2 trillion federal rescue package approved in late March set aside $8 billion for tribal governments. The money was supposed to be distributed by April 26, but the Treasury Department said it was grappling with how to do it.

Tribes sued the agency to keep the money from going to Alaska Native corporations, which own most Native lands in the state under a 1971 settlement but are not tribal governments. U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta in Washington, D.C., gave the tribes a victory last week by limiting the funding to the country’s 574 federally recognized tribes while he settles the question of eligibility.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Money Tree – How to grow Bell Trees

Forget fruit, the savviest islanders grow cold, hard cash. Here’s how to grow a money tree and bolster your bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Unlike typical topiary, you can only plant money trees in specific spots on your island – but luckily they’re quite common. Once you’ve planted a money tree, you can move it to better fit your aesthetic.

If it’s still a nursery tree, you can dig it up with a shovel. Or if it’s already fully grown, you’ll first need to eat fruit to give you fruit power – then dig it up.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – How to grow a money tree

Money Trees have been around in Animal Crossing for a while, but planting them in New Horizons is simple.

All you have to do to grow a money tree is plant a bag of bells in a glowing hole.
