Re: Wildfire Evacuation Payment
When an evacuation order is given due to a natural disaster, individuals need to leave their homes urgently and often do not have enough time to pack the necessities of life such as food, water, essential clothing (depending on weather conditions), medical supplies, or to plan for transportation and accommodations. In these instances, the Lower Nicola Indian Band may provide a lump-sum payment to evacuees to ensure the evacuees can procure the necessities of life for the duration of the evacuation order. The intent of the emergency evacuation relief payment is to ensure that the Lower Nicola Indian Band can deliver the necessary funds, to help our membership in this time of need.
If you have been evacuated Please reach out to LNIB at 250-378-5157 or email Sondra.Tom@lnib.net or Terri-Lynn.Beckett@lnib.net . This way we can make sure you are safe, and we can set up your Payment to be deposited into your account or update your financial information if necessary.
