Tribal Council Approves a $300 COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Payment for Nooksack Members

Tribal Council

On Monday, April 6, 2020, the Nooksack Tribal Council approved a $300 COVID19 Emergency Assistance Payment to ALL Tribal Members to assist with the financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tribal Council also amended Title 99 General Welfare Ordinance so there is no tax implication.

The Tribal Administration, with limited staffing, will do its best to mail out the $300 distribution to each Tribal member by Friday, April 17th. Please check the Nooksack Tribe’s website and the Nooksack Tribe’s Communication Facebook Page for updates and further details as they develop.

Be safe and continue to practice social distancing, covering your cough and sneezes, hand washing, and disinfecting.

Our priority is to save lives, save livelihood, and save our Nooksack legacy.
