Utility Assistance Program

On behalf of the Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, the Executive Committee has established the COVID-19 Utility Assistance Program in response to the pandemic. The Executive Committee understands the impact this pandemic has had on our AST community and wants nothing more than to help serve our people.

The COVID-19 Utility Assistance Program is a one-time payment of $400.00 for eligible AST enrolled tribal members. This service can be used as a credit or full payment for (1) utility bill. The Absentee Shawnee tribal members who meet the guidelines are eligible for this service. Any unpaid balances from previous residences, any re-connection fees or deposits of any kind that are not “Utility costs” will not be paid.
