ARPA-FRF TRIBAL RELIEF PROGRAMS

July 8, 2021

The Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation is announcing the availability of Pandemic Tribal Response Plan Programs to aid our tribal citizens who have incurred a negative  financial impact due to the Pandemic.  This assistance is made available to our tribal citizens in accordance with the Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation, General Welfare Exclusion Policy, and the Nation’s Updated Pandemic Preparedness and Response Plan.

 

These two programs are available for qualifying tribal citizens for Housing Assistance up $1,500 and Utilities assistance up to $1,000 in a single month, for rent or mortgage assistance, and utilities categories for electrical, water and wastewater utilities, and heating costs for later in the year if applicable.  Qualifying payments are made to the service provider or landlord/financial institution on behalf of the tribal citizen.

 

Please note, this is a per household cap for both programs in any given month, a qualifying tribal citizen can apply for both housing and utilities program assistance, however, if other tribal citizens residing in the same household apply for the same program the per household cap remains the same for them as the first qualifying applicant in the household.

 

These programs are funded from the Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation’s apportionment of Treasury American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Fiscal Recovery Fund (FRF) Relief Funds, and is subject to all the regulations and restrictions placed on the funding by the U.S. Federal Government.

Completed applications with all required documentation can be submitted in the following ways.
