rescuereliefTlingit & Haida is pleased to announce the Rescue Relief Household program has launched. The program is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act and provides $1,000 per tribal citizen within an eligible U.S. household that has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This program is a one-time program to offset some of the expenses households are facing. Please note, this is not a per-capita distribution.

The Rescue Relief Household program is open until December 2024 or until all funds are disbursed. All tribal citizens are eligible to apply, including households who previously received funding under the CARES Act Need-Based programs.

Tlingit & Haida understands the needs of our tribal citizens and offers several financial assistance programs (Burial Assistance, Elderly Emergency Assistance, General Assistance, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) to help meet these needs.

We respectfully share that the Rescue Relief Household program is not an emergency-based financial assistance program. If you have submitted a Rescue Relief Household application, please rest assured, our Rescue Relief team is working diligently to process all inquiries and applications in the order received.

Tlingit & Haida anticipates 40 days between the date of application and the issuing of funds. Although this timeframe is different from what was planned, it is important that we provide a transparent, realistic timeline to our citizens given the significant response to the Rescue Relief Household program. We greatly appreciate your patience and are very honored to serve you during these unprecedented times!
