One-Time Food Allowance Cheque Distribution

January 18, 2023 @ 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM
St. Regis Recreation & Snye Homemakers
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne recognizes the hardship faced by community members in the districts of Kana:takon and Tsi Snaihne during the Hydro Quebec power outage of January 5 & 6, 2023. MCA will be providing $200 to every household impacted by the Hydro Quebec power outage.
These funds are a one-time-only allowance to help families recover from food loss or added fuel expenses experienced during the power outage, especially as food prices are presently so high. The overall health, safety, and wellness of you and your family is our priority and remained our concern throughout the outage.
The $200 allowance will be distributed in the form of a cheque made out to the head of household listed in the MCA Heating Assistance applications. Cheques will be distributed to Kana:takon and Tsi Snaihne districts only.
Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2023
Kana:takon Residents: 4-7 p.m. at the St. Regis Recreation

All remaining cheques will be available for pickup beginning on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2023 at the Mohawk Government/Admin 1 Building in Kana:takon. ID & signatures will be required.
Please be mindful that this assistance is a one-time allowance and may not be available following future power outages.
