If not, there’s still time to respond and to help make sure your community doesn’t miss out. Where there are more people, there are more needs. We have to make sure you and everyone in your community is counted.

Will health care and education be important to you in three years? In nine years? Your community risks getting less funding every year for the next 10 years, if you don’t respond to the 2020 Census now. This means you could lose benefits you already have. Make sure you and those living with you are not left out. Visit 2020census.gov to respond now.

We have received applications from four sources that are reviewed for name changes, address changes, and enrollment verification. We are also recording the needs of members to identify and later forward to our Tribal Council the most impact the virus has had on our members. We are also documenting the most important needs of our Tribal community as we will continue to experience the virus’s effects on our daily lives.  There are approximately 2,800 adult Tribal members who will be submitting applications. We thank each of you for your patience during this process.

The Tribe must adhere to certain guidelines and requirements in order to be in compliance with the COVID-19 Relief Assistance funding and must be prepared should an audit be conducted on how the funds were dispersed among the Tribal membership. If the guidelines and requirements are not followed, the Tribe will be responsible for repaying the funds.
