Wyandotte Nation 477 Program

Wyandotte Nation provides services under Public Law 102-477, which allows us to combine certain formula-funded federal grants into a single plan.

Our goal is to create safe and stable families, raise educational achievement, develop and enhance employment opportunities, integrate employment and training services, and increase self-sufficiency.

Wyandotte Nation provides services for job training and work experience as well as educational assistance.

We provide financial assistance for classroom training, vocational training, and other job readiness services.

Wyandotte Nation also provides funding assistance to our Native American community in order to increase the availability, affordability, and quality of childcare services. Each family is able to select an approved childcare provider that fits their needs, which allows families to maintain or achieve self-sufficiency through work or education.

We provide a childcare subsidy for eligible families that meet income guidelines based on their family size. Parents are responsible for a copay to the day care and the tribe covers the remaining childcare costs.
