LTBB Tribal Court Administrative Order
COVID-19 RE-OPENING PLAN FOR THE LTBB TRIBAL COURT
Administrative Order 06-24-2020-05
LTBB Government buildings have been shut down since March 16, 2020 due to the COVID 19 pandemic. On May 18, 2020, we implemented Phase I of the government’s phased reopening plan. Phase I is currently scheduled to end on June 27, 2020. The overall goal of LTBB’s COVID-19 Multi-Phase Re-Opening Plan is to provide employees with as safe as an environment as possible and protect privacy, while providing governmental services to our tribal community. Phase II goals are to continue provide a safe environment for staff and the community while lifting restrictions for our governmental operations. Government operations will continue to strive to do our part to help flatten the curve in the State of Michigan and our tribal community. Health and safety posters and handouts related to COVID-19 are available for all employees upon request.

CARES Act Application
The LTBB Health Department will be moving forward with the second payment for the Medicare Reimbursement Program as scheduled in July. If you received reimbursement for your Part B premiums at the beginning of this year, there is nothing else you need to do to receive your second installment. The second check will be processed automatically. If you received reimbursement for Part D premiums, we will need proof of your Part D premium expenses for January-June 2020. Rest assured, Valorie Glazier, our Patient Benefits Specialist, will be reaching out to all citizens that submitted applications during the first round of reimbursement to work with you to get the documentation we need.
For LTBB citizens that are currently paying for your Medicare Part B and Part D premiums and did not apply for reimbursement earlier this year, it is not too late to be reimbursed for premiums paid January-June 2020!! The Medicare Reimbursement Program Application is located in the Health Clinic Forms Directory on the LTBB website. We can also mail or fax you an application.
Please call Valorie Glazier at (231) 242-1748 to request an application. She is also available to answer any questions you may have. Please be patient, we are working through calls as fast as we can.
I am happy to inform all of our citizens that ALL of the stimulus checks are ready and have been dropped off at the post office. Miigwetch for your patience while we have worked to get this much needed relief to our people.
Chi miigwetch to Carrie and Cheryl, as well as the rest of our accounting team. They worked long hours, tirelessly, to ensure this money made it out to our citizens as quickly as possible. We could not have done this without them.
As always, I am available for any questions or concerns you may have— never hesitate to reach out.
LTBB has received funding from the CARES Act, and amongst other distributions – DOC will be administering a portion of these funds to Tribal Citizen-owned businesses that were negatively impacted by COVID-19.
DOC is seeking contact information (including name, phone number, and email) and proof of ownership (such as an SS-4, a Doing Business As filed with LTBB or any other government, or a copy of the last filed Business Tax return) to be emailed to DOC@ltbbodawa-nsn.gov for all businesses legally owned by LTBB citizens at 51% ownership or more who were negatively affected by COVID-19.
DOC is in need of this information by June 11th so we may send out the corresponding grant applications for funding.
