May 6, 2021 — Band members who want to receive economic support payments need to fill out a Band Member Attestation Form by June 14th to be considered for eligibility for future payments. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not received an Attestation Form from the individuals listed.

Click here for the list as of May 6, 2021.

If your name is on this list, please submit a completed form to OMB. If we do not receive your form at least 14 days prior to the next payment, you will be ineligible for that month's payment.

If you know someone on this list, please contact them and make them aware that OMB needs their form and current address. They may not have received a form in the mail because they recently turned 18 or because OMB did not have their address.
