On May 28, 2021, the Business Committee passed a resolution to provide direct payments from a portion of the Nation's American Rescue Plan Act funds to enrolled members of the Nation who qualify for such payments by showing financial need related to the COVID- 19 public health emergency. The resolution will provide direct payments to eligible tribal members who have been enrolled at least one year or were enrolled by the age of one year old. Elders (ages 65+) will receive $4,000, Adults (18+) $3,000, and children $1,000. Applications are available on the website, at the tribal administration office, or you can call the office and ask the receptionist for one to be mailed to you. Applications can be submitted by mail or email as noted on the application. Members may also drop off the application at the tribal office.
