Tulsa, Oklahoma-Cherokee Nation is hosting a series of community drive-through events focused on helping Cherokee elders register and apply for a $ 2,000 COVID-19 grant for their tribe.
On May 27, Prime Minister Chuck Hoskin Jr. signed a bill to provide a $ 2,000 lump sum COVID-19 grant to all more than 392,000 Cherokee Nation citizens.
Approximately 150,000 Cherokee Nation citizens have applied for a support fund to help recover from the effects of COVID-19.
Chief Hoskin describes the drive-through event as follows:
“Some older people know that they lack online registration technology or may have a connection problem, so Cherokee Nation is seeking help from the community. Elderly people are our top priority. Is the Cherokee method, and many older people are particularly affected by COVID-19, which has high utility and food costs. Our staff is a COVID-19 grant provided by Cherokee Nation. I will do my best not to overlook the elders. “
Drive-through events are primarily focused on helping seniors apply, but they can also help people who do not have access to the internet or mobile phones.
Guidance is also provided to seniors who have lost their citizenship card or do not know their registration number.
Cherokee Nation cannot provide assistance with new registration applications at community events. Anyone who needs to register as a Cherokee National Citizen should continue to seek help in Tahlequah by mail, phone, fax, email, and face-to-face.
“Cherokee Nation has donated 43% of the $ 1.8 billion received from the US Rescue Fund as a direct aid to helping the recovery of tribal citizens. These community events have all citizens these funds. We hope it helps you to apply for it, “said Deputy Secretary Brian. Warner said.
