The Cherokee Nation extended the application deadline for the 2019 Clothing Assistance Program to Friday, June 14 for Cherokee Nation citizens affected by recent flooding. 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 gift card for every school-aged child in the home.

Applications can be printed from www.cherokee.org, 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.

All applications must be submitted by 5 p.m., at a Cherokee Nation office location or by mail, on June 14.

For more information on income guidelines or other eligibility requirements, call Cherokee Nation Human Services Family Assistance at 800-256-0671 or visit www.cherokee.org.
