The Cherokee Nation is opening applications for emergency utility assistance starting Friday, May 6.

The Emergency Utility Assistance Program aims to assist eligible Cherokee Nation citizen households affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with utility payments.

Assistance may be used to cover a portion of past-due utility payments, current and future utility payments, and utility deposits. The tribe can assist with natural gas, propane, water or electricity. The payment will be made directly to the utility company and the applicant must upload the utility bill they wish to receive assistance on with the online application.

Applications to apply will be available starting May 6 only on the Gadugi Portal. Deadline is Friday, June 3.

The Cherokee Nation will utilize funds from the Emergency Rental Assistance Program from the U.S. Department of Treasury.

To be eligible for the program at least one household member must be a Cherokee Nation citizen.

Those eligible must live within the Cherokee Nation Reservation and household income may not exceed 80 percent of the area median income.

For questions regarding eligibility or assistance with applications, email human_services@cherokee.org or call 918-453-5464.
