Tlingit & Haida is pleased to announce the Rescue Relief Household program.

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.

To complete an online application, visit:  If you are an Elder or do not have access to the internet, please call 1.800.344.1432 ext. 7711 or 907.463.7711 and our Rescue Relief team will be happy to schedule an appointment for you to complete your application by phone.

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 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.
