$154,000 in total benefits have been processed for payout to members of the Band who were essential workers with childcare costs during the pandemic.
Eligible applicants who did not receive approval for benefits before the fund expired will be kept on file. We will continue discussions with our partners around securing additional funds to better meet the needs of our membership. Those applications will be processed should additional funds be secured.
Although there are no remaining funds to distribute at this time, the application will remain open to give the Band a better understanding of need.
