The Craig Tribal Association offers Hardship Donations to tribal member families in times of loss. Whether it be through a monetary donation, a donation for the use of the Tribal Hall for memorial or funeral services, or mileage tickets to get somewhere in the event of a family emergency.
The Tribe can also authorize a round trip on the IFA for a truck to go to Ketchikan to pick up the loved one and bring them home from the funeral home for the services.
If you have questions regarding a Hardship donation, please contact our Tribal Administrator, Anna Guthrie, at (907) 826-3996
