Mold Attacks Native American reservation

Mold has infested and sickened public housing units at the Lac Courte Oreille Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Reservation. Now the question is posed if the tribe has mishandled $1 million in taxpayer money. A grant was awarded, but only a handful of houses have been repaired, and the cost to complete the repairs has grown substantially. A hundred members of the Lac Courte Oreille Band have requested a forensic audit of tribal accounts.

Mold assistance

Category : assistance

Dear George,
I have a friend whose son is undergoing treatment for Hodgekins Lymphodema. They have found a LOT of mold in their house. Are there any resources or organizations out there that may help them financially to redo the house and get rid of the mold?
signed,
help

Dear Help,

The government website http://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/Benefits.shtml is where you can “Get official information on grants, loans, financial aid, and other benefits from the U.S. government.” There appear to be a lot of resources available.

This portal has a search engine to look through government benefits include health care, and living assistance; and this portal lists grants.

You might try local state resources too.

Disaster and Fema assistance is here http://www.fema.gov/individual/grant.shtm
