How Líl̓wat Nation is using the ISC Emergency Management Assistance funds

We have been getting questions about whether or not Líl̓wat Nation will be doing a direct distribution of the ISC’s Emergency Management Assistance funds to members.

To date, Chiefs and Council have approved a spending plan for this money that has been provided for Líl̓wat Nation’s COVID-19 response. That plan addresses food security (food and grocery gift cards), community protection (by installing more signage, etc.) and food and shelter support for members living off-reserve.

Not all of the money we have received form ISC has been allocated. Your ideas for how we should use these funds are welcome. Specific send requests or ideas to
