GYL CARES Assistance Program
If you are a Gana-A'Yoo shareholder, 18 years of age or older, who has experienced negative financial impacts due to COVID-19, you may qualify for cash assistance through the CARES Assistance Project. The program provides eligible shareholders funding up to $1,448.
The Program provides a one-time payment to eligible Gana-A'Yoo shareholders who have extra expenses and/or loss of income related to the COVID-19 pandemic between March 1, 2020, and December 31, 2021, that has not been paid by or reimbursed by any other Alaska Native Corporation, CARES Act Program or any other federal, state, tribal, or local government.
The Cares Assistance Program is funded through the corporation's allocation of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding and will provide cash assistance directly to eligible Gana-A'Yoo shareholders who have experienced negative financial impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.
