American Indian leaders say disruptions to some services for the elderly and other needy reservation residents could linger despite the end of the government shutdown.

Tribal leaders said Thursday it could take days or weeks to get backed-up funds flowing. They're also grappling with federal cuts imposed even before the latest budget impasse shut off payments entirely.

On Montana's Crow Reservation, officials say about 30 home health providers remain furloughed with no word on when they might return to work.

Others hope to regain stability more quickly.

California's Yurock Tribe expects to have 60 furloughed workers back on the job within 48 hours. Montana's Fort Belknap Reservation plans to take a $2 million loan to cover costs for social programs that continued through the shutdown.
