The Yomba Shoshone Tribe, within its reservation, is generally located in south central Nevada. The Yomba Indian Reservation contains approximately 4,681 acres of land located within the upper Reese River Valley of Nye County, Nevada. The lands now comprising the Yomba Indian Reservation were assimilated between July 1937 and February 1941 from a series of four separate ranch acquisitions including the Bowler Ranch, Doyle (Bolster) Ranch, Dieringer Ranch and the Worthington Ranch. The Upper Reese River and its tributaries provide irrigation water for each of these ranch areas, as well as the intervening, non-tribally owned ranches.

Notice of Intent to File Application
The Yomba Shoshone Tribe is in the process of filing an application for funding with the USDA-Rural Development Community Facilities programs for the purpose of financing a new water tank, drilling a new well and refurbishing the pump house, water mains and other water lines in the tribal complex to meet the present and future needs of the drinking water demands of the buildings on the tribal water system (admin buildings, houses, church, police trailers, etc.).
The total cost of the project is approximately $1.3 million and the amount of funding requested is approximately $1.3 million. It is anticipated the project will be100% grant funded meaning there would be no cost share from the tribe.
This matter will be scheduled for public discussion and comments at the Tribal Council meeting on December 9, 2016 at approximately 10am in the Tribal Council chambers.
Questions concerning the project can be directed to Susan Jamerson, Yomba OEP Director at 775-964-2463 x110 or Judy Camarillo, Yomba Administrator at x103.
