AKWESASNE HEATING ASSISTANCE PROGRAM 2021-2022 UPDATE
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is once again pleased to provide the heating assistance program for the 2021-2022 winter season to our community members who are registered under the Akwesasne Band Membership Code and residing in any of the three districts (Kana:takon, Kawehno:ke, and Tsi Snaihne) and in the City of Cornwall.
We are excited to announce that there was an increase for the 2021-2022 winter season, in which MCA allotted an extra $200 for Akwesasronon 59 years of age or less and an extra $300 for elders age 60 and older. Recipients in the age 59 and under category were provided $700 and elders received $1100.
This year continued to be a challenge for Akwesasne due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic as we remained under emergency measures, and as we struggled to get through this together as a community. The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne continues to provide services to our community members in which we hope we can make each of your lives and those of your families a little less stressful.
MCA would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the Mohawks of Akwesasne Community Settlement Trust for their continued support of this important community assistance fund. Niawenhkó:wa!
