Free Tribal Food Sovereignty Event

On the mornings of January 27, 28, and 29, 2021 Northern California Tribal Court Coalition will host the Third Annual Restoring the Balance: Preparing Tribal Food Systems for Uncertain Times.

Please join us for this free and engaging virtual gathering for the Yurok Tribe, Karuk Tribe, Trinidad Rancheria, Bear River Band of the Rohnerville Rancheria, Tolowa Dee-Ni’ Nation, Hoopa Valley Tribe, and their food sovereignty partners.

The theme of this year’s virtual community event is resilience and food security featuring local, regional and national food sovereignty leaders. Together we will explore a holistic approach to building and supporting a resilient Tribal food system and the relationship of Tribal food sovereignty to law, policy, traditional resource management, economic development, education, and many other areas that influence the food systems of NCTCC’s member Tribes. We will learn about local and regional projects, deliberate about strategies to strengthen Tribal food security, and explore funding opportunities as we contemplate Northern California

Tribal Courts in the Time of Covid

Please join two of NCTCC’s esteemed judges, Hon. Abby Abinanti and Hon. Michelle Krieger, to learn about how their Tribal Courts have responded to COVID and how “virtual” sessions have become the new reality in the courts of Indian Country. This is the latest offering in NCTCC’S popular, free Zoom training series.

This training will contain information specific to Tribal courts in which Judge Abinanti and Judge Krieger hear cases: Yurok Tribe, Bear River Band of the Rohnerville Rancheria, Hoopa Valley Tribe, and Karuk Tribe. The Judges do not intend to speak for all Tribal courts in Indian Country. 

Please join us at 1:00 pm on January 15, 2021. After you register for the event you will receive Zoom login information.

This training is made possible by a generous grant from California Rural Indian Health Board.

January 12, 2021 DEADLINE for Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

To All Tribal Leaders;

On December 27, 2020, H.R. 133, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplement Appropriations Act, was signed into law. One of the key provisions in H.R. 133 was funding for rental assistance through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). Of the $81.88 billion appropriated, $409.4 million was set aside specifically for tribal governments or their tribally designated housing entity (TDHE). The Treasury Department seeks to distribute the funds as quickly as possible and this has created a short window for enrolling in the program, with a deadline of Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 11:59 P.M. (EDT).

The funds will be provided directly to tribal governments or TDHEs and the enrolled grantees may distribute the funds to eligible households through existing or newly created rental assistance programs. To receive ERAP funds, tribal governments or TDHEs must enroll through the ERAP web portal here, and must provide payment information and accept the award terms.

Tribal governments or TDHE must enroll by Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 11:59 P.M. (EDT).

If tribal governments or TDHEs do not submit their information via the portal by the January 12th deadline, the Treasury department will redistribute the funds. We urge tribes or TDHEs to submit their information via the web portal before the deadline.

If you have any questions about this Alert or would like further information, please contact Mica Llerandi at Thank you.


Stay safe and healthy.
