The program sent a round of checks already, where 7,500 went unclaimed.
The program began as a way to help tribal members specifically who had been negatively impacted by the pandemic.
Reasons for unclaimed checks could be an incorrect mailing address or incomplete application.
This second round, 8 months after the last check from the federal government, will help tribal members afford food, has, and firewood as inflation continues to climb.
