CARES Act Administrator

Just a reminder we are still currently under the COVID19 pandemic, so there will be no walk ins allowed for the distribution of checks at the tribal office.

Any person who is an officially enrolled Tribal Member of the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians as of June 1, 2020 will be eligible for the CARES Act COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funds. All adults 18 years and older who have filled out a completed verification form, your check will be mailed this week. Verification forms received will be processed in order they are received.

Cares Act Assistance Forms are available on the LCO Tribal website ( and can be picked up at the Tribal office front entrance. You can leave your form with the front office, fax, or mail it to:

Mail: LCO Emergency Relief Assistance

13394 Trepania Road

Hayward, WI 54843

Children’s checks are still being processed at this time and I will provide an update as soon as I can. Parents, guardians, or legal custodians must fill out a form for EACH minor child and be able to provide legal documentation concerning legal guardianship, physical placement or other out of home placement.

Please contact the enrollment office with any updates to your address, to confirm your tribal ID number and/or to schedule an appointment for a new tribal ID card. 715-634-8934 to contact the enrollment office.

The deadline for applications is SEPTEMBER 1, 2020.
