ARPA 1 NOTICE : Applicants, please be advised, if you have had repairs completed on your home with ARPA 1, the program is considering your application complete.  We understand that you may have listed other needed repairs within that level that did not get complete.  The ARPA Home Repair Program was created to improve Tribal Member homes to a safe and habitable residence with the thought in mind that the Tribe would take on the costliest repair.  If your repair did not reach the max amount per level, and you had other repairs listed, no other repairs will be done to your house due to the cost of supplies and labor to cover the remaining amount.  There are a few applicants from ARPA 1 that need their repairs to be complete and the program will take on the higher expense of repairs.  The ARPA 1 program has served over 160 Tribal Member’s on and off the reservation and has spent all the allocated money for ARPA 1.

ARPA 2 NOTICE : The statement above will apply.  The program will pay for the costliest repair to return your home to a safe and habitable residence.  The program can only work with the allocated money by Tribal Council and want to serve as many Trial Members as possible that need repairs.

Please look forward to hearing from the program within the next month as we are going over applications and determining repairs.
