Financial assistance to be sent to members of Northern Arapaho; No pickup in person

(Fremont County, WY) – On Monday, August 16, the Northern Arapaho Business Council will send financial payments to all tribal members who have applied. A payment of $ 1,500 is issued to each member – regardless of age – and families may qualify for multiple payments depending on the number of eligible individuals living in the household.

Aid payments will only be sent by mail and will NOT be available for personal collection at the Ethete Pow Wow site as originally planned. The decision to send payments was made due to an increased spread of COVID-19 on the Wind River Reservation and the need to avoid getting individuals to congregate on the Pow Wow site. Members who missed the July 30 deadline for applying for funding will have another opportunity to apply for financial assistance in September.

“We look forward to sending these $ 1,500 financial aid payments to Northern Arapaho members,” said NABC President Jordan Dresser. “The Business Council hopes these payments will make a difference in the lives of the people of northern Arapaho – help is on the way!”
