The Cherokee Nation is now accepting applications for the 2019 Clothing Assistance Program. The tribe’s clothing voucher program helps Cherokee families purchase new clothes for school-aged children for the upcoming school year.

Last year the tribe helped more than 4,500 students, grades K-12, from across the tribe’s 14-county jurisdiction prepare for the first day of school with gift cards totaling more than $450,000.

To be eligible for the program, students must be age 5 before September 1, 2019, a Cherokee Nation citizen, live within the 14-county jurisdiction and meet additional income guidelines.

Once parents have provided the necessary paperwork and have been verified by the tribe, the parents receive a $100 VISA gift card for every school-aged child in the home. Gift cards will be able to be used at any store.

Applications can be printed from https://bit.ly/2YA7cGy or picked up at any Cherokee Nation Human Services field office and the W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex in Tahlequah from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cherokee Nation Human Services offices:

  • Catoosa field office, 750 S. Cherokee St. Suite N.
