The Tribal Council has motioned to approve (Motion 2- 6/18/2020) the release and distribution of the CARE’s Act Funding to all adult Tribal Members over the age of eighteen (18). This distribution will be in the amount of $10,041.75. Adult members who currently have past due Accounts Receivable will have those amounts deducted from the distribution amount. Adult Tribal Members who currently have DEFAULTED LOANS will have 50% of the defaulted loan amount deducted from the distribution amount up to $5,000.00. Adult Tribal Members are required to complete the attached COVID-19 Assistance Program Application and return to the Executive Secretary by Friday of each week. Applications will be distributed to the Finance Department on Monday of each week to allow time for accurate processing, there will be no exceptions to this. The Tribal Council is aware of the hardships that our members may be having to endure and it is our hope that with the release of these funds that we can aid in alleviating some of the financial burden that our members may be facing. The Tribal Council wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to all of our members and we hope everyone is staying strong and overcoming these challenging times.
