Readout: Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo Visits Tribal Nations to see Impact of American Rescue Plan Funding and Economic Development Support



THERMAL, CA – Today, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo visited two Tribal nations in southern California: the Agua Caliente Tribe, and the Torres Martinez Tribe. The visit was the Deputy Secretary’s first to Tribal lands. Last year, Secretary of the Treasury Janet L. Yellen visited the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Dakota, marking the first time a Treasury Secretary had visited a Tribal Nation.

During today’s visits, Deputy Secretary Adeyemo witnessed first-hand the impact American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) resources are having on Tribal Nations and discussed Treasury’s ongoing commitment to strengthening relations with Tribes. The American Rescue Plan, signed into law nearly two years ago, included $30 billion in funding for Tribal nations to help them recover from the pandemic and invest in long-term community development, the largest-ever single infusion of federal funding into Indian Country. The Treasury Department has played a pivotal role in administering these resources. Tribal governments have planned or begun implementing over 3,000 projects and are providing essential services with the funding, improving the health, safety, and quality of life for millions of Tribal citizens. The Torres Martinez Tribe has invested approximately $1.3 million in job training programs; budgeted over $1 million to provide broadband access across all areas of the reservation; and partnered with the All Mission Indian Housing Authority to administer ARP’s Housing Assistance Fund (HAF) and Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) programs, the latter of which has helped over 900 Tribal households.

Over the past two years, the Treasury Department has prioritized strengthening relationships with Tribal Nations. Last year, in addition to Secretary Yellen’s visit to the Rosebud Indian Reservation, Lynn Malerba, Lifetime Chief of the Mohegan Tribe, became the first Native American Treasurer of the U.S., and Treasury established the first Office of Tribal and Native Affairs, which Chief Malerba oversees. Earlier this week, the Office, which is charged with coordinating Tribal relations throughout the Department, announced its first Director. The Office is also responsible for overseeing the Treasury Tribal Advisory Committee, which advances the policy priorities of Tribal communities by engaging with various Treasury departments on policy, guidance, and regulations. Treasury has also worked to increase direct engagement with Tribal leaders and has hosted over 40 formal consultations and over 300 information and training sessions with Tribes to support economic development. Treasury is also consulting with Tribes on the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes Tribal-specific funding to address climate-related impacts in Native communities.

StormForge, the leader in Kubernetes resource optimization, today announced their partnership with Kumina. The Netherlands-based company with over a decade of experience in providing mission-critical IT services will offer StormForge's Kubernetes resource optimization solution Optimize Live.

Together, Kumina and StormForge will provide Kubernetes users with an all-inclusive package comprising managed Kubernetes services and advanced optimization capabilities.

This partnership will help users enhance the performance and efficiency of their Kubernetes clusters, reducing costs and freeing up resources to focus on other aspects of their business. Consequently, Kumina's expertise in managing Kubernetes clusters with customized IT solutions will assist users in maximizing the performance of the optimization platform provided by StormForge.

Kumina's CEO Tim Stoop is enthusiastic about the benefits customers gain from integrating StormForge:

"I was impressed how Optimize Live has solved a whole class of customer issues with one solution, reliably and deterministically, while actually allowing resource usage to go down as a whole. We can help customers scale with confidence and cut costs with StormForge without sacrificing user experience. I am really excited about the potential that StormForge brings to the table."

Optimize Live

StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes. By optimizing CPU and memory settings, customers can save cloud resources and money, reduce the business risk of poorly performing applications, and get their developers focused on innovating, not tuning their Kubernetes environment. StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:

"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."
