The DAP application lists a number of categories of potential financial hardships. Applicants are required to check the boxes corresponding to COVID-related financial impacts they have experienced that have not been paid or otherwise reimbursed by another Alaska Native Corporation, CARES Act program, or federal, state, tribal, or local government. For example, if an applicant lost his or her job, and already received payment or reimbursement from another source for that job loss, he or she may not claim the same loss a second time with BSNC.
All applicants must certify that the expense or financial hardships for which assistance is sought have not been otherwise accounted for or reimbursed.
Receipts are not required to be submitted; however, applicants must agree to maintain reasonable documentation of the expenses for which DAP funds are received for at least five years and, upon reasonable request, to assist BSNC during that five-year period by providing copies of documentation and any other information necessary to verify the expenses.
