At a special meeting last week, the NVE Tribal Council approved a NVE COVID-19 Relief Tribal Household Grant, a NVE COVID-19 Relief Business Grant and a NVE Tribal Member Food Assistance Program.
The programs were created to assist families that have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic because of loss of employment, closure of businesses and schools, and stay at home orders, and that as a direct result of the COVID-19 public health emergency Tribal Members and their families are having difficulty meeting basic financial obligations such as rent and mortgage payments, utility payments and food purchases.
Please see the attached letter for more information.
