Kahnawake Economic Relief Measures Fund mandate extended for 90 days


The Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke (MCK) wishes to announce that the mandate of the Kahnaw�:ke Economic Relief Measures (KERM) Fund has been extended for 90 days.

An additional $3 million has been added to the KERM to provide sufficient funds to continue to assist community members and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, for a total of $12 million. This includes a $1 million donation from Mohawk Online.

The KERM was initiated pursuant to a Kahnaw�:ke COVID-19 Task Force directive to the MCK�s Executive Team to address income security and economic disruption issues  as a result of the emergency measures taken in response to the pandemic. It is managed jointly by Tewatohnhi�saktha and the MCK�s Client-Based Services.

�While there have been some minor issues, the KERM Fund has been a crucial component in addressing shortfalls experienced by businesses and workers alike during this challenging time,� said Iets�nhaienhs Gina Deer, who is one of three elected Council Chiefs who sit on the board overseeing the KERM. �The original $10 million has not been used up, but we wish to be prepared should the situation continue. The KERM Fund has allowed us to address our community�s safety and financial  needs quickly, efficiently and effectively�

Persons/businesses needing assistance should contact Tewatohnhi�saktha at 450-638-4280 or MCK�s Client-Based Services at 450-638-0500.
