TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation will begin accepting clothing voucher applications at different locations through the month of July. The tribe’s clothing voucher program helps Cherokee families purchase new clothes for school-aged children for the upcoming school year.
To be eligible for the program, students must be in grades K-12, a Cherokee Nation citizen, live within the 14-county jurisdiction and meet additional income guidelines. Once parents have provided the necessary paperwork and have been verified by the tribe, the parents receive a $100 gift card for every school-aged child in the home.
Cherokee Nation employees will be available at various field sites throughout the 14 counties to accept applications. Representatives will be available at Warner High School, Nowata Public Library and Washington County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at all other locations from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
