American Rescue Plan Act Economic Relief Payments to CSKT Members

(Pablo, Mont.) On January 11, 2022 the Tribal Council voted to approve relief payments for 2022. The Tribal Council determined that significant economic hardships continue to be experienced by the Tribes and its members as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to these hardships, the Council approved the use and disbursement of ARP Act Fiscal Recovery Funds in the amount of $2,000 for eligible tribal members.

The one-time relief payment for 2022 will be disbursed on or after January 20, 2022, to those who are eligible members, as of the November 15, 2021 per capita tally that was used for calculating the December 2021 per-capita. 

The Tribal Council also voted to provide disbursements to newly enrolled members who appear on the official enrollment record by the April, August, and December 2022 Per Capita payment dates. These new members shall be entitled to receive their $2,000 distribution in the following month concurrent with their per-capita payment. This will ensure that no Tribal member is left out of the 2022 disbursement.
