Tribal Council Message to All CSKT Eligible Enrolled Members:
On June 23, 2020 the Tribal Council approved the Coronavirus Economic Stimulus and Relief Allocation to ensure all eligible CSKT enrolled members, including children, will receive one-time payments for unexpected costs and household expenses or loss of income because of the COVID-19 pandemic and public health emergency.
The Economic Stimulus and Relief Allocation will provide a one-time payment of approximately $1,800 to every CSKT enrolled member. You must be enrolled as of July 16, 2020, and living as of August 14, 2020 to be eligible for the stimulus payment.
The forthcoming stimulus payment will be disbursed on August 14, 2020. Payments will be processed according to the information on file with the CSKT Enrollment Office. If this information is correct regarding your per capita mailing address or per capita direct deposit, you do not have to do anything to receive the payment. If you need to make a change, please contact the CSKT Enrollment Office (406-675-2700 extension 1014) OR visit cskt.org and complete the Stimulus Payment online form to update the required information, NO LATER THAN JULY 30, 2020.
All payments will be disbursed without judgments or holds ordered by any court.
Due to the time limit on expenditure of the CARES Act funds, any Economic Stimulus payments that are unclaimed by November 14, 2020, will be forfeited.
The Tribal Council has discussed the CARES Act funding at length. We appreciate the Tribal members’ input, concerns, and discussion, and we are grateful for the effort and assistance from all of our staff throughout that process. We appreciate your cooperation with the CSKT staff who are charged with implementing this important service for the benefit of the Tribal membership.
