Tribal TANF to have open house at new site

The California Tribal TANF Partnership Program for Trinity County will hold an Open House for the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, March 13, to celebrate its new location at 1313 S. Main St., Space B, in Weaverville.

California Tribal TANF Partnership (CTTP) was established in 2003 and is associated with multiple California tribes. CTTP operates under the governing body, Robinson Rancheria Citizens Business Council of Pomo Indians in Lake County. The CTTP program provides cash assistance and supportive services to Native American families who qualify for the program. The partnership emphasizes employment, education and Native American culture as a way to self-sufficency and assist our participants to reach their goals with program services.

Tribal TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) was passed into law in 1996. There are approximately 566 federally recognized tribes in the United States. California alone has 118 federally recognized tribes.

Still time for businesses to apply for fire grant

There is a little time left for businesses impacted by recent wildfires to apply for a recovery grant through Superior California Economic Development.

Grants up to $5,000 may be awarded to established for-profit businesses based on demonstrated need and availability of funding. The program announced in January will be winding down around April 1, but requests will be accepted until then.

Grants may be used to replace inventory, equipment, tools and verified uncovered repairs (physical losses) that are necessary to re-establish the business; cover insurance deductibles for business claims; help with specific activities to ramp up marketing efforts to renew the customer base and/or attract new customers; purchase/replace essential office equipment required to support income generation and sustain the flow of increased business activity.

Priority of grant distribution includes established businesses within the Carr, Delta and Klamathon fire footprints; call for program guidelines: 530-225-2760, ext. 203. For more information contact Loree Byzick at the number above or loree@scedd.org.
