Tribal Council has reviewed all the guidances received from the U. S. Treasury and the I.R.S. for the allowable uses of the CARES Act funding. If you have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, I encourage you to apply for this funding. We recognize that this one grant payment will not address everyone’s needs, but it will help.”
