The 2019 Cherokee Nation Angel Project applications are now available at sites throughout the tribe’s 14 counties. Applications can also be submitted online through Oct. 25.
The Cherokee Nation Angel Project provides gifts for Cherokee children ages 16 years or younger who live within the 14-county tribal area and meet income guidelines.
To qualify for the tribe’s income guidelines, applicants must provide proof of income for all household members over the age of 18. For example, a family of three must not exceed $2,165 net income per month, and a family of four must not exceed $2,615 per month.
Last year during the holiday season, 1,700 children received gifts through the program.
Applications for the 2019 Cherokee Nation Angel Project can also be submitted online at https://webapps.cherokee.org/angeltree.
