The Spokane Tribe Johnson O’Malley Program assists students ages 3 (Preschool) through 12th grade in local schools districts Wellpinit, Mary Walker, and Reardan. If your child attends a school other than these three listed school districts, you will need to call your child’s school to determine your JOM distribution site.
The Spokane Tribe Johnson O’Malley Program does not fully defray the entire cost of education support and requires the student and parents to financially contribute. Additionally, JOM funds come into play after the student has fully utilized all other sources of financial aid, including all forms of State aid and Pub. L. 874 payments. This includes Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funds.
Funding made available are for purchasing necessary items for students involved in academic or school related extra curricular activities.
