CARES emergency funds are now available to assist American Indians facing financial difficulties during the COVID Pandemic.
The purpose of the COVID-19 emergency housing assistance is to provide emergency temporary housing assistance to Indian families who are in immediate need of shelter because they are either homeless or about to become homeless, including those living in unsafe conditions.
Families must meet the HUD definition of low income defined as 80% of median family income for the United States and reside on the Spokane Indian Reservation and the counties of Lincoln, Spokane, and Pend Oreille.

• Move-In Assistance: First & Last Month’s Rent Deposits
