Navajo Nation Coronavirus Stimulus Checks: What Is It?

The Navajo Nation recently voted to send $2,000 stimulus checks to each eligible adult and $600 to each child. Recipients can use the incentive money to purchase protective equipment, pay for education-related expenses for students, as well as pay utility bills, rent and mortgage payments.

This aid program was approved by a vote of 18 to 2 for the stimulus money. The tribe will use a portion of the $2.1 billion fund it received from the American Rescue Plan Act, which was passed last March.

About 350,000 tribesmen will benefit from this incentive program. It is estimated that approximately 250,000 adults and parents or guardians of 95,000 tribesmen under the age of 18 will benefit from the program.

“A second hardship aid allocation of $2,000 per adult and $600 per child will enable our family members to now purchase essential winter supplies such as gasoline, firewood and food,” council delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty said in a press release.

The Navajo Nation coronavirus incentive checks are automatically sent to members who have applied for emergency relief in a previous round of social assistance benefits.

“Individuals do not have to reapply for the second grant of social assistance benefits. All future check disbursements will follow the financial process previously approved by the controller’s office on:,” the press release said.

More help from Navajo Nation

This is the second time the Navajo Nation has sent out incentive checks to its members. Previously, tribesmen received checks under the Navajo Nation CARES Fund Hardship Assistance Program. Funding for the program came from the money the tribe received from the CARES Act, which was passed in March 2020.

About 7,500 checks have not yet been claimed from the previous round, mainly due to address and application errors. The last date to claim these unclaimed checks has already passed. About 312,000 registered members received the money in the first round.

“We urge our people who have applied but have not yet received a check to contact the auditor’s office before December 23,” Tribe Chairman Jonathan Nez said in the release earlier.

Separately, with the increase in Omicron cases, Navajo Nation has also agreed to send stimulus money to indigenous tribes aged 60 and over. The checks will go to senior Navajos who received assistance from the Navajo Nation CARES Fund Hardship Assistance Program in 2020 or 2021. It is estimated that more than 48,000 people are eligible for financial aid.
