TGB Approves 2nd Assistance Distribution for All Tribal Members

The Lac Courte Oreilles Tribal Governing Board unanimously approved a $300 Winter Assistance Disbursement from the Capitol Improvement and Enbridge accounts to be paid to every adult tribal member (18 years of age by December 31, 2023). The approval was made Monday, Nov. 20, at their weekly meeting.


The disbursement is expected to be distributed on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 8 and 9, for in-person pick up, but the place of distribution hasn’t been finalized.


All checks not picked up on those two dates will then be mailed out to all tribal members.


A further announcement will be made on where the pick up will be held.

To the ones who asked about the inflation disbursement, you literally had to go to the rez to pick the check up otherwise you didn’t get it.

I didn't even know about the first check. I live off the rez in Idaho and never got the 1st one and we have been struggling really bad here. I hope the second one gets here. I appreciate any and all help during these hard times

Yes why didn't the ones who live off the rez get the $500 first disbursement . We are all facing inflation costs also

The Tribal Governors need new Boats and RV's for Christmas. The unclaimed Out of State members who can't get there to receive their checks will be paying for the new Boats and RV's (All by design)

Please provide some back up to this please. When did the tribal government ever file for bankruptcy?

Fed Ex wants $126.00 to send my notarized proxy pick up authorization documents to a second party in Wisconsin to pick up my check. Getting it notarized cost me an additional $15.00. It will cost a relative another $70.00 in fuel to drive to the Res, and hope (pray) the check will be available for pick up when he arrives. (Admin. Lunch breaks, Coffee breaks etc.). Thanks for making it convenient for Out-of-State Tribal family to get their checks! Any chance you could send it in the mail with my Christmas check, or my Birthday check, or my Senior Check, or even with the second assistance check which will be mailed to everyone who cannot be present in person? …
