  1. The Navajo Tribe tried to use CARE funds to install water pipes to homes without water since washing hands is a necessary measure to avoid COVID 19. The people in these homes travel 40 miles to haul water in barrels. While providing free water is an allowable direct use, running pipes to these same homes is considered infrastructure, not an allowable use. I think a request to build out broadband will be seen as not a direct service use, rather as infrastructure. I and we do need broadband. Good luck.
