UPDATE ON COVID PAYOUT
The Finance Department will be mailing checks for all tribal citizens this week. We’ve worked with our accounting software company to find a way to process a check for every citizen at once, instead of batches, so we thank you for your patience while we worked that out. We are working to get checks out as early this week as possible, but they will be in the mail by Friday 3/24 at the very latest.
If you need to update your mailing address, please call Shannon Smith at (207) 817-7311 ASAP.
- Tribal Council has approved a payout to all Penobscot Nation citizens from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds program, a part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
- Each citizen will receive $1,300. You do not need to apply; a check will automatically be mailed to you. We are not able to send these payments by direct deposit.
