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

Tribal Council

On Tuesday May 19, 2020, the Nooksack Tribal Council approved a $1,000 COVID-19 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, under the current circumstances, will do its best to mail out the $1,000 distribution to each Tribal member by June 1, 2020. Any address updates need to be made with the Enrollment Office by May 27. Contact enrollment@nooksack-nsn.gov or call 360-592-5176 10 am – 3 pm. Address update forms can be found on the website at https://nooksacktribe.org/departments/enrollment/. 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 physical distancing, mask wearing, covering your cough and sneezes, hand washing, and disinfecting.

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