To assist our Enrolled Tribal Members impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Tribal Council has made the decision to assist our members from funds received through the American Rescue Plan (ARP).
As such, ARP Emergency General Assistance funding will be available to support COVID-19 rescue and recovery efforts of our Tribal members as follows:
Enrolled RSIC Tribal Members 18 years and older will receive $3800.
Enrolled RSIC Tribal Members 17 years and younger will receive $1000.
To be eligible, you must be an enrolled member by September 1, 2021.
The deadline to apply for ARP Emergency General Assistance funding will be September 17, 2021.
You will be required to complete the ARP Emergency General Assistance Program Coronavirus Relief Fund Application and W9 form before a check can be processed. To further prevent the spread of COVID-19, all checks will be mailed once available. W9 forms will be utilized to ensure appropriate updates to our Finance and Enrollment data systems to capture accurate contact information as necessary.
All applications and W9 forms will be sent to Marlene Yarrow, Tribal Council Secretary or Verna Nuno, Vice-Chairman and Tribal Administrative Assistant at 34 Reservations Road Please do not hesitate to contact Marlene Yarrow or Verna Nuno at 775-329-2936 for any questions or further assistance.
