In 2021 the Governor’s Office for the State of Washington, due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, approved for a limited time the unrestricted use of tribal fuel taxes. The Tribal Council based off of this available funding approved a General Welfare Emergency Disaster monthly $100 distribution to all adult enrolled Tribal Members to assist in covering the cost of purchasing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
This was a limited emergency disaster distribution based on available funds and assessed emergency need. The December 2021 GW Emergency Disaster PPE distribution sent out on December 1, 2021 was the last distribution cycle that will be taking place for PPE funds. If you did not receive your December GW Emergency Disaster PPE funds please reach out to the General Resources Department.
Thank you and Happy Holidays,
The General Resources Department
