Cherokee Nation helps citizens sign up for COVID-19 Relief Money

Hoskin said almost 200,000 people have already applied for the money. These drive-thru events are designed to reach older citizens who may not have access to a computer or have trouble using one.  “These dollars really do help not only Cherokees, but the communities in which they live and that creates jobs, it creates economic vitality that we think we can harness to even greater prosperity for the Cherokee people,” said Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. “We certainly want to be of service to Cherokees as much as we can wherever they are to the greatest extent possible,” Hoskin said. 

“Especially when you’re living on social security, in my case, and doctor bills and medications and all that kind of good stuff I have to buy,” said Carney.  Pearlie and Stephon Carney were among several people there to get help. They said they’re grateful for everything the Cherokee Nation does and are excited about the COVID-10 relief money. 

The money comes from a $1.8 billion COVID-19 recovery fund through the “American Rescue Plan Act.” Every citizen will get 1,000 dollars each year for two years. “Overall, it’s been very, very helpful, quite a blessing,” said Pearlie Carney.

The Cherokee Nation will have similar drive-thru events like this in the coming weeks in Tahlequah, Warner, and Bartlesville. To get more information about those, the Cherokee Nation said to follow its Facebook page here or check its website here. Chief Hoskin said citizens have until June 2022 to apply for the money. That also includes people who become citizens in that time.
