We want to remind our Peoria family to check that you have filled out the “Applicant Full Name” and remember to attach a copy of your Government Issued Photo I.D. when submitting your application!

If you are submitting a paper application through email, please ensure all pages are in one email (3 application pages and 1 attachment for your government issued photo ID). If we do not receive all three pages + a copy of your government issued photo ID in one email, the application will be considered incomplete.

Thank you for your cooperation, and as always, Peoria Proud!!!

No worries. You may submit your application without your roll number; however, we encourage our citizens to submit your application for a duplicate/new Tribal ID as soon as possible. You can download this application here, or stop by the office to apply for your duplicate ID in person.

Additionally, to protect your privacy as a citizen of the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma, we will not be able to give information regarding your citizenship over the phone.

All Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma citizens, including children, who were enrolled as of September 22, 2021 are eligible to apply for and receive relief from this program.

With a minor child’s application, an I.D. for the child is not necessary; however, the signing parent/guardian of that application must attach their I.D. to the child’s application.

The amount each eligible citizen will receive is $3,200.

If you do not have any kind of legal custody arrangement with your child, then you will not need to submit proof of such! Documentation is only needed for children which are currently living under a court-ordered custody or foster arrangement.

This is okay. You will still be eligible for relief if you certify that yourself and/or family falls under at least 1 of the 3 Financial Need Certification categories.
