At Tuesday's COVID-19 meeting, Tribal Council approved $1 million of the $10.4 million we received under the US Treasury allocation of the Tribal CARES Act set-aside to go towards operational costs such as temporary hires to support the Tribe's efforts to address COVID-19. Additionally, Tribal Council approved $3 million to specifically go towards general welfare (membership-based) programs. Of that $3 million, up to $295,800 has been set aside to support a COVID-19 Food Subsidy Program for Tribal members/residents, where all Washoe households will be able to apply for a grocery store gift card at the amount of $200 per month for up to 3 months (receipts will need to be submitted to verify purchases are in compliance with the program). We are eager for this program to go "live" and will post the application for members once it is finalized. Details of additional general welfare programs are still being developed and will be announced once they are approved.

*INPUT NEEDED* ENROLLMENT SURVEY
The Washoe Tribal Enrollment Committee is in the process of reviewing and updating our Enrollment Ordinance (last official update on record was in 1977), and they are in need of input from our Tribal Membership! This survey will take about 30 minutes, and will require your review of our current Enrollment Ordinance (provided). This is an extremely important topic, so I hope that we can all take the time to fill out the survey and provide helpful recommendations and direction for our Enrollment Committee members. If you have questions or comments, or if you would like to request a paper copy of the survey (for yourself or a family member), please contact Autumn Burtt or Janessa Patiga at the Washoe Tribe HQ (775-265-8600), or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

P.S. I know we fill out enrollment surveys all of the time, but this time we have an official Enrollment Committee in place dedicated to reviewing our Enrollment Ordinance and making recommendations to Tribal Council so that we can get back to reviewing and processing enrollment applications.
