General Assistance

General Assistance provides temporary funding to those who have unmet essential cost of living needs due to situations such as unemployment or dislocation. Applicants must demonstrate a need for living essentials as defined by Bureau of Indian Affairs standards, and they must also demonstrate they do not have another source of income. Funding amounts are calculated by demonstrated needs and standards.
