The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources Storm Shelter Program was created through MCN National Council legislation TR-17019 in February, with $100,000 being appropriated for the program.
The program allows for the purchase and installation of storm shelters for Muscogee (Creek) citizens.
Eligible citizens need to be homeowners living within the MCN boundaries. Mobile homeowners must own the home and the land where the home sits.
Preference will be given to elders ages 65 and older, the handicapped or disabled, veterans and those living in rural areas. Limit one per homeowner/household.
DANR will begin accepting applications Aug. 1.
Applications will be available on tribal campus, the Southern Regional Office, and online Aug. 1.
Approved applicants will receive an approval letter and the contractor will contact the applicant to schedule installation. The Nation will make the payments directly to the contractor.
