What is Navajo Nation hardship application 2021?
The Navajo Nation is an American Indian territory in the United States comprising northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico. Regarded as by far the largest area retained by an indigenous tribe in the US, the Navajo Nation accounts for almost 3,32,129 tribal members according to the 2010 population census. Ever since the Covid-19 pandemic struck all parts of the globe, the Navajo Cares Act Hardship Assistance Program, largely run on public funding, came into the picture to remedy people’s problems in the Navajo Nation area.
Last December, the US Congress and the White House agreed and approved the extension of the Coronavirus Relief Funding (CFR) through the Cares Act. The Navajo Nation Hardship Assistance Program application is set to go live from August 1, 2021 and will remain open till September 30. The tribal leaders have agreed to giveaway $41.97 million which they had received from the federal Coronovirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The Cares Act was originally going to end on December 31, 2020 but has been extended by another year.
The Navajo Nation will soon issue COVID hardship checks. This will be the second round of checks for people who did not receive assistance last year. More than $319 was already paid out last year and the leaders are left out with another $42 million approximately for 92,000 people this year.
Those who have received the Hardship 1 assistance last year would not be eligible for Hardship 2. Only those people will be eligible to receive the assistance who have enrolled and who were negatively impacted by Covid-19.
