Hoopa Tribal Council Approves Salmon for Elders
- Hoopa Tribal Council Approves Salmon Distribution Project for Elders
Long Meeting Runs Two Days
A long agenda pushed the regularly scheduled Hoopa Valley Tribal Council meeting into the next day after dozens of attendees waited nearly three hours for closed session to end.
After resuming the meeting on Friday morning, with fewer attendees, the Council passed several motions including a $30,000 plan to provide a salmon distribution project for elders this fall salmon season. The project will use remaining funds from salmon disaster relief aid granted from Congress in 2007.
Earlier in the meeting, the Council gave their grant writer the green light on a state grant that could provide funding for home weatherization. The same pot of funds is accessed by Redwood Community Action Agency (RCAA), a non-profit organization that provides weatherization and energy assistance to low income Humboldt County residents.
�This will directly impact their program [RCAA] because instead of sending them the money, the state will send it directly to Hoopa,� Hoopa grant writer, Norma McAdams said.
