This weekend, Rogers County residents lined up outside the Claremore Expo Center to apply for Cherokee Nation COVID Relief Grants.

“With the teams help Cherokee Tribal Councilor Janees Taylor and myself helped hundreds of Cherokee elders apply for the Cherokee Nation COVID relief grants. We appreciate the Claremore Expo Center loaning us their parking lot to make it possible,” said Cherokee Nation Tribal Councilor Keith Austin. “If you know of a Cherokee elder age 62 or older make sure they have applied. If not they can apply online, the deadline is September 11th.”

Applications can be found on the Cherokee Nation website.
