Welcome to the Kaw Nation

Tribal Social Services


Kaw Nation tribal social service programs provide support services to Kaw members in need.

Members in need is defined as those who are economically disadvantaged due to disability, unexpected hardship, unemployment, elders on a fixed low income and those who do not have the resources to pay for vision or dental insurance.

The social services director will use the current annual HUD Section 8 Low Income guidelines to determine eligibility for need based services. Applicants will demonstrate need by providing a copy of their current household income (check stub, social security letter, SSI or food stamp card) with their application.

Tribal social services will be provided contingent upon the financial status of the Kaw Nation. Should social service funding be suspended, need based applications may still be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Once funding is restored, need based applications may be approved on a first come first serve basis.
