Tribal Council Approves Emergency General Welfare Assistance


Tribal Council Approves a One-Time Emergency General Welfare Assistance Distribution in Response to COVID-19 in the amount of $250 per member 18+

On Monday, March 16th, 2020, The Nooksack Tribal Council approved a one-time distribution of $250 to all Tribal Members 18 years and older (as of 3/16/2020) to assist with COVID-19 mitigation expenses. The Council has amended title 99 – General Welfare Ordinance so there is no tax implication to the member for this distribution.

Tribal Administration will do its best to mail out the $250 distribution to each tribal member by Wednesday, March 25th, though please expect offices to be busy in this preparation.

Be safe and continue to practice not touching your face, avoiding close contact with other poeple, social distancing, covering your cough and sneezes, hand washing, disinfecting, and getting familiar with symptoms.
