Social Services, Council Offers Expanded Rental Assistance Program

Social Services, Tribal Council

Are you in need of rental assistance due to the pandemic?

The Nooksack Indian Tribe has received a grant to assist Nooksack Tribal members within the United States who have been directly or indirectly affected by COVID-19 with emergency rental assistance.

This policy has been recently amended to include employees of the Nooksack Indian Tribe and its entities, as well as Nooksack Indian Tribe descendants. This will include employees of the Nooksack Tribal government, the Nooksack Market Center, Between the Ferns, and the Northwood Casino. For details, applications, and qualifications please contact Nooksack Social Service or the Homelessness Resource Program.

Here’s what you need to know about the Nooksack Emergency Rental & Utility Assistance Program:

  1. You don’t have to be behind in rent or utilities
  2. Applicants can be Nooksack Tribal members living anywhere in the U.S.
  3. Tribal members of any federally recognized tribe within our service area can apply. This includes Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
