Per-Capita-Distribution Date Change

On July 10th the Board of Directors made a resolution changing per-capita distribution from the 2nd Tuesday of every quarter to the first Saturday of February, May, August and November. Our next per-capita will be distributed on Saturday, August 1st from 9:00am to 6:00pm in the tribal gym. Please mark your calendars to come visit us that day.

We made the decision to move Per-capita distribution to Saturdays hoping that it will provide better customer service for tribal members. We know that a lot of people have a hard time getting here during the middle of the week because of their jobs. We also have a lot of youth who are in school and sometimes they don’t make the right choice: they skip school to pick up their per-capita checks. We decided that we would move Per-capita to Saturday to provide that extra time so no one has to take time off from work or school. The bank is still open on Saturday, so checks can still be cashed.

If you have any questions about the change, contact Enrollment, 360-716-4300.
