The Navajo Nation’s President, Jonathan Nez, recently approved this vote. This council ensured that stimulus checks would be distributed to nearly 350,000 tribal members.

Earlier in the COVID situation, the President also approved additional relief packages. For these checks, he used central government relief funds.

He also stated that the Navajo people will not suffer a financial crisis. As a result, the government has stepped forward to provide financial and mental assistance.

Crotty has also stated that in order to assist the people during these difficult times, the government will provide a monthly payment of $2000 to adults and $600 to each child.

According to Nez, the Navajo CARES Fund also sent 7500 checks. The remaining checks will be distributed by 2021.
