Curyung is accepting applications for COVID financial assistance provided through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) now through February 28th -
All living, enrolled tribal citizens who demonstrate a negative financial impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic are eligible for up to $1600 each.
This year we have streamlined our application process using DocuSign. If you are an enrolled tribal citizen and have not yet received a DocuSign application in your email account from either Klarissa Larson, Kristin Smeaton, Michelle Wiard or Ani White, then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting an application be sent to you.
We are processing as many applications via DocuSign as possible therefore a PDF version of the application will not be made available online. There are paper applications available at the office if needed.
Each adult, 18 years old or older must fill out their own applications. Parents of minor children will apply on their behalf. If you are not yet enrolled, you have until February 1st to complete an enrollment application with the Tribal Clerk, for enrollment at the February 8th Council meeting or you may not be eligible for these funds.
