Rep. Schrader Announces Significant CARES Grant to support the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Today, the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the release of a $1 million-dollar grant to aid the Siletz Tribe. These funds will be used for emergency housing assistance for Siletz families who have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

I am glad to see these federal dollars being allocated to those who need it most,” said Rep. Schrader. “The current pandemic has taken a huge financial toll on so many families and seniors. These emergency rental assistance funds will ensure that our tribal neighbors who are experiencing hardships will be able to stay in their homes.”

"The tribe is most thankful for Congressman Schrader's support during these trying times,” said Chairwoman Delores Pigsley, Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians of Oregon. “The funds are very much needed to support families and tribal elders in need.  The tribe appreciates being included and supported by our Oregon delegation.”
