• Household income and family size
• Verification of Native American descent (children, parents or grandparents)
• Verification of work or school (min.20hrs/week)
• Must reside in our service area (Becker, Mahnomen and a portion of Clearwater Counties)

You must reapply for assistance every 12 months and notify the agency of any changes in household income.
