General Welfare Program
Emergency Technology Assistance Grant
September 14, 2020 – December 1, 2020
The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma has established the COVID-19 General Welfare Program Technology Assistance Grant to provide funds to purchase electronic hardware or software to assist a tribal household with minor children or young adults (4-18 years old still in pre-school thru grade 12) who are participating in remote education or an elder (65 and older) who needs a device for telemedicine and communication. This Emergency Technology Grant is created specifically to keep our tribal youth and elders safe and to assist in the mitigation of the COVID virus by providing a means to stay at home and obtain an education and/or receive medical attention.
This grant will provide funds ($500.00) to purchase hardware or software (examples on the application) - one per household - as described above. In order to receive an emergency technology assistance grant, an applicant must demonstrate eligibility for the grant by providing required information in the application.
The grant application form will be mailed by today’s date September 14, 2020 to each Miami Tribe of Oklahoma member household with minor children and/or elders 65 and older.
Applications must be postmarked or emailed on or before December 1, 2020. Applications that are incomplete or received with a post mark after December 1, 2020 will not be processed.
