Osage Nation Disability Assistance Program now accepting applications

The Osage Nation Disability Assistance Program is now accepting applications to assist disabled members of the Osage Nation.

Available funds for the program have been increased to $150,000 this year, according to the Financial Assistance Department Director Jodie Revard. The program serves all disabled Osage members, regardless of where they live.

According to an Osage Nation press release, to qualify as disabled, the person must have a physical and/or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Qualifying Osage tribal members can apply for $1,000 in assistance per person, per year. Eligible participants are administered to on a first come, first serve basis.

Applicants must be enrolled Osage tribal members and provide an approved third-party verification of an existing disability. 

Last year’s Disability Assistance Program was funded at $50,000 and depleted quickly.
