The Northern Arapaho Business Council (NABC) is pleased to make available additional financial aid for Members who require assistance due to COVID-19, they shared in a press release.
Eligible Members may apply for a $300 stipend. This is the second round of payments for enrolled Members of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, and is made possible as part of federal relief secured by the Tribe through the CARES Act.
Individuals must be a Tribal Member, at least 18 years old, and attest that they face financial difficulties or have a financial need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We know that too many Arapaho people are financially hurting due to this terrible virus,” the Northern Arapaho Business Council said in a statement. “Many Members lost jobs, suffered furloughs or had their hours reduced in recent months. It is our hope that these dollars will help temporarily ease these financial challenges as Tribal businesses re-open and employees return to work. If you are a Member of the Northern Arapaho Tribe who needs monetary assistance because of the pandemic, please take advantage of this program for yourself and your family.”
The deadline to apply is 4:45 pm on September 25th.
