Board of Trustees Approves Year-End COVID Assistance to Tribal Membership

MISSION, OR – The Board of Trustees of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) voted unanimously to distribute a year-end COVID assistance payment to the CTUIR Tribal Membership. 

 

On Monday, December 13, 2021, each CTUIR Tribal Member enrolled as of December 6th, 2021 can expect an automatic payment of $750 to be deposited to their previously registered bank accounts or a check mailed to their most recently listed address, as provided to the Tribal Enrollment Office.

 

No application or action is required to receive this assistance. If you or your dependents have moved within the last 30 days or changed any kind of contact information you are asked to email (Enrollment@ctuir.org) or contact the Tribal enrollment office to verify your records are current.

 

This payment distribution is intended to assist Tribal Members incurring costs associated with the pandemic and no funds will be withheld by the Tribe for any outstanding Tribal loan payments or current child support debts.
